DevLearn 2016 Conference & Expo - November 18, 2016

Karen Hyder

Kaleidoscope Training and Consulting

Have you ever watched a really engaging web-based conference session and wondered, “How’d they do that?” When slides or polls appear or videos pop up and play automatically, it’s not magic! There’s a person behind every action who must click, type, or drag to make things happen. And learning how to use these features when you run your own webinars is surprisingly easy.

If you’ve always been a participant and never a presenter, this session will give you a behind-the-scenes peek at how interactivity in webinars can be done. To get started, you’ll explore the Adobe Connect software from a presenter’s point of view so you can see what aspects of it you’ve been missing. You’ll find out more about how to choose the right kind of webinar room to set up, which settings you’ll want to customize to get ready for interactions, how to work with participant questions and tech problems, and what the main differences are between the presenter view and the participant view.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to choose the right type of webinar room (meeting, training, event, webinar) for your event
  • How to customize settings and features to accommodate planned interactions
  • How to manage participant questions and technical issues
  • What presenters do that participants don’t see

Novice and intermediate designers and managers.
