I agree Brett, KM is a team contact sport!
My 2-day programme usually has a 2-hour experiential exercise which incorporates:
I have adapted it so that they work in a Zoom breakout with Miro/Mural, and remotely coach/advise one member of the group who has the materials. They and then collectively review and combine the learning.
It’s not quite as involving, as not everyone ‘gets their hands dirty’ – but the frustrations of explaining/communicating clearly are amplified - which adds a new dimension for the reviewing.
So it’s still do-able – the whole 2-days is ‘live’ and interactive. It needs some pre-planning. If you want to ensure a level playing field, then you might need to send a ‘materials pack’ out to some of the group members beforehand.
Alternatively – find a digital task/game to collaborate on (talk to a teenager!).
Somehow though, getting adults to wrestle with physical materials is always a good leveller!

The main problem i see with online KM classes stems from the inability to do practical exercises or group work.
Zoom and Miro, for example, are fantastic tools which, used effectively, render pretty decent training effects.
But KM is about people and a lot value comes from the comradery of connection. Not just over coffee but achieving a result through collaboration.
Yes, I get that we are transitioning to a new paradigm. That is good. And having just done CKM virtually with KMI, I've seen how online KM training can succeed. This experience reinforces my belief that effectively using the right tools for good practical exercise is vital for an online KM course to be useful.
