Strange Meeting (and a few comments on teleconferencing)

This blog by Nancy White from Full Circle Associates argues that videoconferences need to be interactive and purposeful.

She provides four areas to to help improve synchronous online meetings:

  • Make the meeting matter. 
  • Be interactive. Don’t bore me PLEASE!!! 
  • There is facility for joint artifact creation. 
  • Be embodied. There is facilitaty for images or video of the participants.
