I hardly ever use WhatsApp. That tells you two things about me… I’m an old man I live in America But even with these limitations in perspective, I know that the mobile messaging platform is incredibly popular worldwide. Heck, even... Continue reading

Yes, they are all solid points and I don't have any arguments! :)

Thanks for the extra info, Dave! I appreciate that life is difficult for the vendors as well to make sure their system-generated emails don't end up on spam blocker lists. The bad guys have made life hell for all good-intentioned people out there.

What can you do to make sure your webinar communications have the best chance of breaking through email overload and clutter these days? You work on crafting pithy, concise, and informative subject lines. You’re careful about writing persuasive body text.... Continue reading

I saw a tweet that was later removed by the author, so I won’t attribute it out of respect for their wishes. But I thought the concept expressed was provocative and want to explore it. Paraphrasing rather liberally, it went... Continue reading

Hi Nora, I can't give you legal advice on this. My personal recommendation would be to avoid the kinds of things you pointed out. Your standing as an educational non-profit does not influence your liability in a potential copyright suit. And since you are charging people to attend, using somebody else's commercial creations without them getting any compensation feels like it wouldn't help your case if a complaint was ever lodged against you. But my final advice is always this: If you are concerned about potential legal liability, consult a real lawyer. Opinions from laymen like me are a dime a dozen! :) Wishing you all the best with your course creation. --Ken

Today I saw a tweet from a presentation trainer whom I know and respect. They wrote that in a training call, they used an analogy referencing a 1980s Sally Struthers ad campaign about feeding children. It landed flat, leaving the... Continue reading

Come, let’s engage in a little blue sky speculation. This is going to be one of my infrequent posts talking about financial considerations, so disclaimers are important: I have ZERO insider information or informants providing any facts or rumors that... Continue reading

Thanks, Craig. Lots of good suggestions and thoughts in your post.

Ha! I did, but with a LOT of caveats and almost as much explanation as I put in this post. A man telling a woman how to speak is fraught with generations worth of baggage.

Well, we’re getting towards that time of year again… The “danger weeks” when locations start changing between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time. Here in the United States, some states (or even localities within a state) may choose to use... Continue reading

LogMeIn rebranded today to better reflect their primary product line. The company is now known as GoTo. Product names that we care about on this blog remain largely the same, but now get a space in the name. So GoToMeeting... Continue reading

I’m going to write about ongoing lawsuits involving webinar software vendors. I should start with a disclaimer that I have ZERO legal training and no firsthand knowledge of the case specifics. I am an unbiased external observer interested in what’s... Continue reading

I am an old, white, cisgender male. A product of my culture, my upbringing, and my practical work/life experiences. Why start with an introduction like that? Because I am going to delve into a controversial topic and my identity is... Continue reading

2021 was another busy year for webinars as the pandemic plodded on and remote collaboration continued to be the norm. My busy season went later than usual, with webinars booked right up through Christmas week! But now we’re into the... Continue reading

It’s time once again to revisit a controversial topic. Is the conventional wisdom about webcam presentations correct? Does having the presenters appear on camera enhance the experience? Whenever I write about this, I have to couch the subject in disclaimers.... Continue reading

Webex put up a blog post announcing support for attendee-selectable interpretation channels in online meetings. This is a good thing and increasingly crucial in reaching international audiences. One of the features I really like in the Webex implementation is a... Continue reading

Interesting... Mine hasn't caught up yet! I'm still seeing the behavior (and I'm on O365 as well). I'll keep checking over the next few days. Thanks for the update.
