I have to say it was a great experience! Not only did I want to show my support for a colleague who has given so much to the genealogy community, but I wanted to see how the audience felt about the topic and especially the questions and answers.
Using GoToWebinar – a webconferencing / virtual presentation platform – Ol’Myrt did a fantastic job of explaining blogging basics to the attendees. While she was doing that, some attendees were also typing and submitting questions which were automagically answered by the webinar staff!
In addition, when the webinar was completed, and after drawings were held for some fantastic door prizes, OlMyrt also answered questions live “on the air.” For me this was the best part – I was able to get an idea of the types of questions folks had about blogs and also got to find out where they were.
Let’s just say that it seems like from Honolulu to England and beyond, the sun never sat on this webinar!
