There are so many products available to those of us using online platforms. Whether you are conferencing with colleagues across the country (or world!) or hosting a virtual component to an event, the number of options you have at your fingertips is astounding.
This doesn’t necessarily make your job easy, though. You need to know which tool will give you the most bang for your buck and meet your needs. If you’re looking to use an online platform for webinars or meetings, I highly suggest GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar. This tool is very powerful and can handle many of the requirements of virtual events.
For those looking to host an online community, your best options are Social27, Pathable and OneLobby. Here are a few things you should look for in an online platform, whichever you choose, to make sure you’re satisfied the next time you host a virtual event or meeting.
The ability to record and share your online event is a key offering of many online platforms. If you’re capturing online meetings, you can now share them with those who were unable to participate. You can even sell the recordings to the public.
