Raising the Bar on Online Event Practices

Raising the Bar on Online Event Practices | online community hosting | Scoop.it

Alan Levine wrote a deliciously provocative post on last month that I’ve been meaning to comment upon,Five Ways to Run a Deadly Online Seminar . When I read it, my head was bobbing in agreement and recommendations.

 

Alan shares 5 deadly things. I’d like to re-frame and talk about the skills we should be cultivating and the technology we MUST demand.

Karen Schmidt's insight:

(another) Excellent post from Nancy with lot's of tips and links to relevant recources

 

- The deadly things for online events

+ good questions when you raise the issue of improving meetings... 

+ tips for practice - what we should be cultivating.

(one of my favorites is: Facilitate!: Don’t let passive disasters happen. If no one else is stepping up to make your meetings better, take the lead.)

Karen Schmidt's insight:
