Zoom Webinars has a wonderful Q&A system, but it doesn’t have to be the only thing you use for Q&A. We hate telling you to purchase extra hardware, but it would
be helpful to have two or more screens running (or at least a supplementary tablet) that can monitor feeds in other places like social media. You can create a hashtag for your webinar on Twitter and monitor that hashtag during the webinar to look for interesting points or questions.
The World Chess Federation did this in its broadcasts of its 2014 World Chess Championship in Sochi, Russia. While grandmaster Magnus Carlsen was locked in a battle of the minds to defend his championship, there were several long pauses between moves, which gave the presenters plenty of time to comb through Twitter, searching for mentions of the #CarlsenAnand hashtag. When they found something interesting, they popped it up on the screen and commented on it. They were able to have a dialogue with people all over the web in this manner.
Just remember that thinking outside the box gives you major points in the webinar scene. Using Zoom Webinars gives you even more. If you haven’t had a taste of our software yet, we recommend you get started on a free account
