ReadyTalk plays an important role for teams who want to collaborate during meetings. Unlike webinars with only one or two presenters, collaborative meetings require that several people share control of the meeting to present slides, jointly edit a document, share their desktops, etc.
Recognizing that it can be a hassle to promote each participant to “co-presenter,” ReadyTalk recently began rolling out a new feature, Collaborate Mode. This enables you to start any of your meetings in a “Collaborate” or “Present” mode. Present mode will mirror the experience you are used to (all attendees join as participants) and Collaborate mode will automatically promote your participants to the co-presenter role.
As a co-presenter, others in your meeting with be able to:
• See the participant list, so you know who is on the conference
• Chat amongst individual participants or in a group to foster additional communication/collaboration
• Share their desktop or applications for a more collaborative working session
Giving participants access to these features immediately saves time and gets the meeting up and running quickly. It also maintains the flow of the meeting by allowing different folks to take control and share as needed.
We understand that not everyone needs (or wants) this feature so we’ve only enabled it for a subset of accounts. But, we’d love to turn it on for you! If you would like to try out this feature, send an email to your account manager or firstname.lastname@example.org.
