  • present
    • talk over a powerpoint
    • share (display) my desktop
    • play a youtube video
  • show myself at the start of the presentation, and then be able to turn off my web cam for the majority, then re-enable it for question and answers
  • encourage audience participation through the use of hands up, agree/disagree gestures, text responses during the presentation
  • during Q&A, allow the audience to ask questions (voice / webcam)
  • record it and make available at a later date

All of this without too much stress. Note, I’d recommend a session chair to be online to help manage the questions, and I’d like to do this without having to install lots / any software. So, big blue button …. lets see
