  • Lessons learned / Recommendations
    • Organizational:
    • Timing – optimal length
    • Group size
    • Not all CPs have a headset/speakers. Consider telcon option
    • Can CPs use their own office? Where will they be/want to be?
    • Cannot show/share/link to Flash videos (Client limitations) [this also rules out Adobe)
    • Blocked sites need to be whitelisted
    • Functional:
    • Interaction ground rules
    • Whiteboard with multiple simultaneous users (different colours), although WebEx screenshot saves in .ucl
    • - Go around: Snipping tool, or screenshot saved as jpg.
    • ppt. animation
    • Audio content OK when embedded but problematic when streamed via screen/browser share (incl. video)
    • Can’t share/show more than one application at one time (WebEx). No pods present (as in Adobe Connect).
