Flip Your Webinar

You may have heard of the Flipped Classroom:

flipped classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning, which aims to increase student engagement and learning by having students complete readings at their home and work on live problem-solving during class time.

Let’s Flip the Webinar as well:

  • Record your content and share it with your audience in advance.
  • Nudge them to post questions ahead of time as well. Ideally, everyone can comment too, starting the conversation even before the webinar.
  • The webinar is a Q&A live stream focusing on answering all questions!

Couple of advantages:

  • You can really nail your message, demos, customer testimonials, … when recording the main content ahead of time. You can enhance that video with additional information or highlights too!
  • No more running out of time:
    “Oh, we are sorry, but we only have time for one question.”
  • Only the people that are really interested in the conversation will be present, which leads to a high signal conversation.

Amy Jo Kim in her GameThinkingHub is doing precisely that with tomorrow’s: Q&A Livestream The Power of Incentives with Barry O’Reilly (signup required)

I checked out Amy Jo’s video interview with Barry O’Reilly this afternoon at my own time and speed. Now I am ready for the discussion tomorrow.

Amy Jo was able to enhance the interview recording with pictures of Barry’s books:

I may not be able to make this Q&A live stream tomorrow Jan 26th 10am PST, as the Rise with SAP event is at the same time :-(. But I was able to post my question, and as the session will also be recorded, I can jump in later and listen to the answer and discussion around it.

Very cool! Another great step away from the death by Zoom Webinars :-)
