It should clearly teach learners so they can meet the objectives.
Video Presentation: (Please provide talking points, the client will make the video by himself)
Conduct your 8-12-minute virtual training session through ZOOM, or another video conferencing software, with some actual learners in the organization or a group of your friends so you can report on the experience in the next Topic.
