Whether you are presenting on a large webcast or a small virtual training session, Below are 5 online meeting tools that you can integrate on your next event that will capture your participants’ attention and keep them from multi-tasking behind the scenes– every virtual presenter’s fear when they are presenting online.
Create one or more poll questions – Polls are great for learning about your audience experience level, gathering presentation feedback, and pointing out (asking) something specific about your presentation.
Turn on the Annotation Tools for the audience – Annotation tools keep your audience engaged with their ‘pointer’ and encourage participants to interact with the web conferencing medium and your content.
Breakout Sessions – Breakout sessions are often times used for interactive brainstorming and facilitate this by creating smaller group size. These sessions encourage participation due to smaller groups and a more personal experience.
Use the Chat to have the audience type in feedback during the session – Chat gives the audience a direct line of communication to the presenter. This is key for larger meetings as popular questions and support issues can be addressed one to many or one-to-one.
Share Web Content or Program Applications – If you have a document or application that you want to present to others in the conversation, you can start a desktop sharing session. Desktop share saves time and allows for real time document sharing, editing and collaboration.
