703 Interact and Engage! Activities for Spectacular Live Online Events
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, October 26
Whether it’s an online meeting, a presentation via webinar, or live online training, engagement is the main question on everyone’s mind. Interaction is the answer to engagement, and leveraging the features of the platform you use is the answer to interaction. However, the features alone do not engage participants. It is what you choose to do with those features that will make the difference in your next virtual training, webinar, or meeting.
In this session, you’ll learn how to create interaction, accountability, and engagement in your live online events. You’ll review specific activity examples along with a platform checklist to help you learn online meeting technology. You’ll discuss the challenges attendees face each day, and brainstorm and share ideas on how to overcome them. You’ll also receive an activity design job aid, so you have a guideline to create your own engaging activities for your events. Interaction, laughter, and discussion are expected, so come prepared to contribute and learn how to make engaging virtual events a reality!
In this session, you will learn:
- How engaging live online meetings, webinars, and training events are delivered
- Tips for determining the appropriate level of interaction to create effective live online events
- Strategies for analyzing activities for specific engagement techniques to apply to your own activity design
