(This is totally not urgent but just wanted to see if anyone had ideas or suggestions about this topic.)
We would like to experiment with a different webinar/e-conference hosting platform. We now have so many bigger digital sessions together (like the Squad Showcases and Implementer Showcases, and upcoming conference) that we are starting to feel some pain with using our standard Zoom set-up.
Current status: We use Zoom which automatically saves recordings for us, but these take a while to be processed (hours!) before they can be uploaded onto YouTube. People can’t do very much - they can write comments and click a reaction button, but we rarely see people using these features, so it doesn’t end up being a very interactive experience. We cannot do live polls or live reactions, but most importantly we can’t show presenters a count-down timer or a time warning - we have to verbally interrupt them while they are presenting, which is unideal for everyone.
- Free or very low cost
- Participants can speak and share their screens, either on their own or with host permission
- Recording available promptly after, downloadable
- Nice to Haves:
- Show presenters a count-down timer or time warnings (e.g. 1 minute left)
- Live polls
- Live reactions
Let us know if you’d like to look into this, or if there are example platforms that come to mind we should look at!
