How to improve participation and leverage new tech

Webinars are finally having their moment as effective alternatives at a time when face-to-face meetings are just not possible. Simultaneously, webinar tools are improving in quality and number. At the ITCILO, we have experience leveraging a multitude of technologies for different purposes.

Which tools and technologies are used in this course?

Some of our favorite technologies include Webex, Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Skype. These platforms share a common set of features designed to enrich the online presentation and knowledge-sharing experience. A presenter may share a slideshow, stream videos, engage with participants through live text chat, set up polls, invite participants to discuss by “raising their hands”, ask them to take notes on a shared whiteboard, upload documents that support the discussion, and record the entire meeting to be shared with those who could not make it. 

Why should I join?

Today’s technologies offer a diverse set of functionalities that boost audience interaction and engagement. So why do so many webinars still fall flat? That is the key question that this webinar seeks to answer.
