Chapter 18. Using Online Broadcasts and ... > Using Interactive Online Meetings

Using Interactive Online Meetings

In addition to presentation broadcasts, PowerPoint also provides a much more interactive way of sharing your ideas with others: online meetings. PowerPoint has had interactive meeting features for some time. For example, you can use PowerPoint's Meeting Minder (Tools, Meeting Minder) to jot down minutes and action items while you're presenting to a group of people. Online meetings take the concept of interactive presentations online, where you can bring together a group of people from around the world to present your ideas and then discuss them.

Just as with presentation broadcasts, online meetings enable you to show your live presentation to others, including real-time audio and video commentary. However, online meetings also let your audience in on the action. Instead of passively watching your presentation, participants in a PowerPoint online meeting can jot down ideas on a shared whiteboard; interactively send messages back to you and the group; and even take control of the presentation in midstream, make some changes to the presentation, and then give control back to you. Online meetings are much better suited to roundtable discussions and for immediate decision making than presentation broadcasts are.
