614 BYOD: Mics, Webcam, Action! Run Your Next Virtual Event Like a Broadway Director
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, March 28
What do compliance training and the play Wicked have in common? What about onboarding and Hamlet? How about project management and stage management? They have more in common than you think. When you are creating a learning experience, you are producing a performance, and you need to think like a Broadway director.
In this BYOD session, you will participate in an Adobe Connect session and learn what happens “backstage” during a virtual event. You will also walk through the creation and configuration of an Adobe Connect seminar room. You’ll learn that the production components of a well-produced Broadway play are also found in a well-produced virtual session. You’ll learn how to “stage manage” the entire event and discover your inner Harold Prince!
In this session, you will learn:
- What is “backstage” in Adobe Connect and GoToWebinar
- About Broadway practices and how to use them to produce your next session
- How to turn your training sessions into repeatable performances
- Technical “hacks” to make your production stand out
Novice to intermediate designers and online event producers.
Technology discussed in this session:
Adobe Connect and GoToWebinar.
Participant technology requirements:
A laptop or mobile device to access the GoToWebinar room and the Adobe Connect seminar room during the session. For successful participation, please review the Adobe Connect system requirements and run the Adobe Connect diagnostic test on your Mac or Windows computer. If you wish to create and configure your own Adobe Connect room, you will need a laptop with administrator access to Adobe Connect (trial version is fine).
