If you currently use a webinar tool for meetings, which one do you use, and what are the pros and cons of the tool?
We would like to be able to record the webinar to have it available to watch later, have interactivity like polls during the webinar, make it easy for people to join without downloading software, and not be too expensive?
Thank you for your advice and tips!
Hello!We've been using a "pro" Zoom account for a little over a year. It has some great functionality for webinars or large meetings, like polling, chat, moderation, screen sharing, switching presenters, etc. You can use it either in a web browser or as an app (I prefer the app) and I've had really good experiences with sound and video quality, even over wifi. They have nonprofit pricing; it will depend on the number of licenses you purchase. One con I can think of is that if people call in (using an actual phone number rather than the browser or app), you get charged extra. For audiences like ours that tend older and aren't always comfortable using technology, we will often end up paying for people to join that way, which is definitely not ideal (it can add up... one month we had nearly $100 in fees). There are ways around it (don't share the number, pay a flat rate), but it's something to be aware of.Good luck in your search!
Thanks everyone! I really appreciate you sharing your experiences with different webinar tools.
I guess we will all be participating in and doing more webinars in light of the current situation.
