It’s a real word. Go ahead. Google it. (or just click on that link.)
Simulated + Live = Simulive.
What does it mean? In a nutshell…you can be in TWO places at the SAME time. So, it’s presentation magic.
Virtual. Remote. Online. Webinar. Webcast. Etc. Etc. Etc.
The new presentation/education reality is via computer/phone/iPad/tablet using some type of platform (Zoom, Google, Webex, etc., etc., etc.) which relies on TECHNOLOGY. And what happens when you use technology? Technical difficulties. Right? Bound to happen. Especially when everyone and their actual grandmother is online.
Rightnow. Thisminute. Allday. Everyday. In2020.
Just go online (haha, you’re already there) and if you don’t already have your own list of “why I like least about leaning online” search for “why I hate online meetings” or “remote presentations are the worst.” You’ll be reading for days.
In the rush to get EVERYTHING online, people often forget that quantity is not necessarily quality and that the attendee (and the presenter!) deserve to have a seamless presentation experience. Time is a precious commodity. Just because a lot of us seem to have more of it right now doesn’t mean someone else has the right to waste ours with TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES or, maybe even worse, the dreaded “uhhhhhhhhhhh” or “ummmmmmmm” or “like, like” or the “hang on for a second, there are chats coming in with questions and I need to read through them while I prioritize which ones to answer.”
I’ll say it again. The stakeholders – presenters, attendees, moderators, sponsors – should expect to have a seamless online/virtual/remote online learning experience.
Maybe each online event should have an “online event code of conduct.”
I (insert name) do solemnly swear that I will do the following or be forced to watch my presentation over and over and over again as punishment.
- No technical difficulties
- No verbal fillers
- Provide real time interaction with attendees (in a way that does not detract from the content being presented)
- BEGINNING AND ENDING THE SESSION ON TIME
What’s the key to having a SOLE (Seamless Online Learning Experience)? Simulive.
