    Hi, what is your experience with webinars?
    For us in Puerto Rico it has been a challenge to deliver traditional webinars. Most of our participants access the Internet through their cell phones and are not used to the format of a webinar, the time it requires and the technical requirements to download software to access the webinar.
    I have turned instead to Facebook Live with better results. Beside of those who can be online during the transmission and participate actively, the option to view the video afterward on their mobile device has been highly valuable. The comments section is always available to answer their questions and comments.
    After hurricane María the challenge we face is even bigger as almost half of the homes still lack power and telecommunication are extremely unstable.
    Thanks for your inputs.

    • Great question, Sandra. Everyone I know uses different webinar platforms and has various opinions on them. One of the better ways to control the audio part is to allow the system (whichever one you’re using) to call the audience members and also the hosts. Not only does this give you better control, it also ensures that anyone speaking can be recorded if you’re capturing the webinars for future viewing.
