With offices closed and more of us working from home, online meetings and trainings are rapidly becoming the norm. There are definite do’s and don’ts when it comes to virtual gatherings, but many of us have not been trained in how to run successful webinars, so they are often mind-numbing information downloads, plagued with technical problems, and waste the time they’re supposed to save.
The Goodman Center is partnering with the Princeton Area Community Foundation to offer “The Webinar on Webinar” exclusively for our community on May 11th from 2- 3 pm ET. Register here.
The Goodman Center has been focusing on these kinds of meetings and trainings for more than ten years. In 2009 they published the report, “Dialing In, Logging On, Nodding Off: The True Costs of Teleconferences, Videoconferences and Webinars,” and in 2010 they launched “The Webinar on Webinars,” to help public interest professionals meet and train more effectively online.
This one hour online class will show you (1) how to keep participants engaged from beginning to end, (2) the fine details of creating a good online experience, (3) how to overcome “the loneliness of the long-distance learner,” (4) how to use your two assets (voices and visuals) to maximum advantage, and (5) what we all can learn from the radio to make our webinars better.
