Scheduling Webinars

When you are conversing with potential webinar speakers and trying to schedule a webinar start time, we generally aim to have all webinars occur between 11ET/10CT/8PT and 4ET/3CT/1PT to try and maximize availability.

Information for Speakers about Interactive Webinars

Typically webinar presenters create a powerpoint/keynote presentation that the audience sees during the webinar, typically you the presenter shares their screen of the presentation for easy slide transition. In addition, Zoom also has a handful of features for increasing audience engagement. These are chat, nonverbal feedback, polling, and screensharing. We can also gather some information before the webinar from the registrants if that is helpful.


  • Moving beyond a powerpoint - because of the digital nature, you can include more multimedia or screenshare the website if that helps the listener understand something particular about the website and teaching, modules, etc.
  • We can add a question or two to the registration form, although we should keep them relatively short, that could facilitate an aspect of the webinar

During the webinar

Interaction options within Zoom

  • Polling allows you to pose multiple answer/yes-no questions to the audience and receive immediate feedback during the webinar. We can set up specific multiple choice/single choice polling questions and answers before the webinar, and then you can choose to start the poll at any time. Responses are immediately counted, and you can choose to show those to participants or not.
  • Chat box - allows participants to ask the presenter (you) questions and also discuss topics with each other. This allows for conversation without having people have to talk via the audio. This often works well when asking participants for examples of what they do. Getting discussion started early is helpful as well. I'll also be posting relevant links into the chat box as topics come up.
  • Nonverbal feedback provides a means for audience responses and interaction that is temporary, doesn't require typing into the chat, and can be counted. This includes responses such as yes, no, and hand raising, which are options in the Zoom interface
    • Incorporating pauses in the presentation for questions and comments always helps with audience participation.
