Improving Communications in an Online University

I am familiar with creating a power presentation; however I need ideas on designing a training program that will improve communications in an online university where all members are virtual.

Communication Processes
Human resources managers must have the necessary technical skills to be able to design and prepare effective PowerPoint presentations. Many employee communications originate from this team, so effective and appropriate messages and materials are a must.

Design a Continual Training and Communications Program for Employees in Various Locations.
Design a training program that will improve communications in an online university where all members (students and instructors) are virtual. Prepare a Power Point that will be presented to university administration, including all employees on campus as well as virtual. Your training program should include the following:
• How the university plans to maintain important communications to all staff.
• Plans to improve morale and keep up a positive working environment when employees are virtual.
• Methods and expectations for completing performance reviews and other employee evaluations.
• Offerings for continual required training and optional professional development.
• Any other items you deem important for a thorough, effective and enjoyable presentation from the human resources team.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as "speaker notes" for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.

Support your presentation with at least three (3) scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.

Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)

Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide

Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT with the correct course code information. Upload

The communication model is streamline from the dean and administrators to the instructors / professors onward for academic continuity. The communication model plan is one of the important components to operating a fully functional university entity through the means of efficiency, i.e. instant notification or recurring communicative option:

a) Memos (try and think of the method using specialized departments in memorandums to particular recipients on certain matters; class curriculum changes to staff, the adviser's allocation of students during specific seasonal periods, and the dean communicative of class expectations for every stakeholder).

b) The documentation model in stating core competencies and university protocols for professors, administers as well as students (try and think of document communicative within the academic field as promoting a sense of documentation on matters concerning daily operations of the university for continuity - that can entail daily or weekly delivery of such a manner and accessible online or in hard copy form as in pdf format)
