Help us set the future direction of the Virtual Meeting technology
It’s been several months since we started our virtual meetings out of necessity. You all did an amazing job in making the switch from in-person meetings to online. At the same time it’s not been perfect, there’s still plenty of people not turning off their cameras, accidental screenshares happening etc..
We seeing about 75-90 people online each week, with about 70-80 people joining us on Microsoft Teams (with about 5-10 people dialing in via phone and the rest via their computer) and 5-15 people on the YouTube Live Stream, next to this there’s about 20-35 views of the edited videos after the meeting.
We had originally set up the combo of Teams and YouTube Livestream; Teams as that’s what we’re standardizing on with Microsoft’s Office 365 donation and YouTube Livestream for people who are having trouble setting up Microsoft Teams.
This dual production is time consuming and with only 5-15 people YouTube Livestream each week, we’re not sure if it is worth it.
We want to see if it is worth switching to a single platform for the live event to reduce the people-power needed to run the meeting. If we go this route, we would still record the live event and post edited videos for later viewing for those unable to join live (either due to scheduling constraints or technological issues).
Switching to a single platform we have several options to choose from each with their own unique set of pros & cons. We’d love to hear our preferences to help us decide. (you’re not voting, just helping us decide).
Please fill out this form before the next Rotary Meeting on 7/28.
