Online Meetings: Is there a best way to share content?

August 1, 2011 - 0 Comments

The answer is simple… yes. But you need to decide based on your video conferencing needs.

Maybe sharing isn’t the best name – think of it more as showing – meaning the person you are talking to can look at the exact same thing you are looking at on your computer.

It beats emailing a document because they can see you literally point to the item, or make the edit, or surf the website in real time. There are different ways you can share and it can make a difference.

Watch this short WebEx to determine your “best way.”

When you watch, you’ll learn when to share an application or your desktop, and when it’s better to upload a presentation or document to your WebEx session. Virtual meeting expert Janine Kurnoff goes behind the scenes and shows you how to present like a pro. You’ll learn how to easily leverage the best features in both methods and keep your viewers more engaged.

Janine Kurnoff, principal and founder, was in her MBA program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies when she noticed classmates struggling to communicate ideas using PowerPoint. Her classmates and professors noted in contrast that Janine developed presentations that were clear, engaging and well-received. She then was requested to develop a class to share her approach.

In 2001, Janine founded The Presentation Company and began helping some of the world’s top brands create visual messages with PowerPoint. In 2004, The Presentation Company became early adopters of online learning platforms and began delivering courses worldwide. Today, The Presentation Company offers its expertise via a comprehensive suite of learning solutions and personalized services to customers all over the world.
