best ways to do accessibility trainings virtually

Dear list,

Sorry for the long post.

My company has two products Jira and Confluence. We have an
accessibility plug in named unstoppable that makes both Jira and
Confluence accessible for blind screen reader users. Our CEO at the
beginning of the year wanted us to do half/full day trainings on both
unstoppable for Jira and Confluence. However after doing this
experiment for every month since may we have had 0 people attend our
last 3 monthly sessions. Some of us within the company originally
suggested at the beginning of the year that instead of doing the all
day trainings that we either create short couple minute videos of our
unstoppable product in action with Jira and Confluence and post it to
our website and social media sites so people can view it instead of
sitting in these half/full day trainings. Our CEO told us that we had
to do the full day trainings and it did not turn out well for us in
terms of the attendance. Our CEO said that the accessibility community
loves full day trainings!!! Is this true?

I was wondering if people could tell me what they think is more
beneficial for companies to do full day trainings or create short
videos with quizzes to help teach people how to use our products?

Any advice would be great?
