I posted a while ago about Second Life as a possible "virtual seminar" location and we ended up (in that thread) deciding that probably it would not work for my community.

I'm kicking around new ideas today. I've been on talks on Talkshoe which allows someone to bring on callers and cut them off, if needed. But the technology always seemed flakey. It could have been the user, though.

I would like to do something where I can provide good solid information and get questions - I could do it strictly online (where people type) and that would work great for visual learners like me who type fast. But others are auditory and don't want to type out questions, so I need an audio solution as well.

Thots anyone?

That's pretty common... that's how many webinars work. You have a presentation going on online, and that allows people to use a 'chat window' where they can have text conversations. Ideal for presenting a topic. At the same time you have a conf call going on. The webinar component is the visual part, the conf call is where the presenter talks. The host can mute everybody or open the microphone for questions.

Is this what you need?

Diane:

How about doing a teleconference where you are the only one talking?

You could take questions online (via email?), and answer them live.

With an assistant there to read the emails and prep them for you, it should flow smoothly.

Thank you all. I am probably overthinking this and just need to start with something and see how attendance works out.

This is exactley what i just attended with marketingexperiments.com. it had a chat window for quetions and comments and he would answer them over the confcall. in the power point presentationthey ran polls which you could participate in and itwould show the votes live on his end and then he could close it and the stats would appear! works very very well!
