Presenting by Webex


Has anyone got any interesting resources for giving presentations via Webex (or similar software)

YouTube has some material but not very inspiring...particularly looking for good examples that have been saved somewhere and I can download.

Thanks in advance

  1. you lost me there Steve…..

    WebEx and similar allow you to share an application or share your screen, hence, whatever you have on your computer you can show to delegates on a web delivered session…..personally I've used PowerPoint and I've also shared word documents and excel spread-sheets.

    You could probably share prezi or whiteboard animations but I'm not sure if the bandwidth would cope well.

    Is that the kind of thing you were after ?


  2. Yes and No

    Hi Russ

    Yes and no really.

    I would use the same principals as I would for a non-web presentation.

    However…in order to back up my case I have been asked for a "good practice" example of a webex presentation.

    Having searched around Youtube, Vimeo, Slideshare etc etc all I see is bad PowerPoint examples, even from people at the top of some very big trees!

    I did find a nice song on my travels…


  3. Virtual Learning resources

    Hi Steve – some of the best stuff we've come across is on Cindy Huggett's site: check out her resources page for loads of useful templates and ideas. It's not specific to Webex, but fairly universal to any virtual classroom environment.

    Jo Cook is a big Webex fan she is one of the Learning and Performance Institute's facilitators for their Certified Online Learning Facilitator course, I can't see that much on her site, but she may be able to point you to something.



  4. presenting or facilitating?


    If you are presenting by webinar it is different to facilitating a learning event.

    The former is basically the same as a lecture or standard presentation……the presenter talks and there is little interaction or evidence that the attendees are actually paying attention or learning anything. These events often have up to three hundred people taking part.

    The latter is a very different kettle of fish altogether.  Colin Steed has written a very good book on the topic which I'd strongly recommend

    I hope that helps


  5. Thanks

    Thanks Rus

    I'm passing all this on to a colleague…it''s not for me.

    I don't really like on line meetings, presentations etc. I've attended (supposedly) the best of the best by really experienced on line master super users and still get bored after 5 minutes.

    Possibly an age thing!
