Editorial Reviews

Review

As our workforce is distributed, our learning and training must also go virtual. Becky s book provides the tools to design and deliver webinars the right way interactive, creative, and engaging. Using these tools, you can match the learning that takes place in an instructor-led, participant-centered classroom. --Elliott Masie Chair, The Learning CONSORTIUM

Webinars with Wow Factor is clearly a valuable resource for anyone looking to use webinars as an effective tool. I have spread the word that this book is a must read for everyone in our organization involved in conducting webinars and look forward to improved results in our already successful webinar efforts because of this great book! --Mike Broderick CEO, Turning Technologies, LLC.

I thought your book was wonderful! I will definitely be using some of your tips and tricks in my work. There were so many times throughout reading that I thought, Exactly! or Hmmm. Do I do that? or Oh, boy! We better start doing that! Thank you for making me think deeper about what I do on a daily basis. --Heather Clevenger Webinar and Partner Marketing Manager Elluminate, Inc.

Pluth's book spends some time discussing webinar preparation ("Where Do I Start?"), the "Deadly Sins" of Webinars, and creation of effective Power Point decks and participant handouts.

The bulk of the book, though, focuses on "interactivities" (interaction + activities) that can easily be incorporated into most any webinar to enhance learner participation and, ultimately, learning transfer.

I've perused multiple books covering webinar activities, and most have assumed that the webinar platform used offers similar tools (polling, whiteboard, application sharing, video, web browsing, etc.). Unfortunately, the company I work for -- because of both software limitations (firewalls) and hardware issues -- uses a platform that does not offer a whiteboard functionality, video capability, and web browsing. Kudos to Pluth for offering "Variations" to most activities that allow them to be modified to fit most any situation.

While the majority of the Interactivities presented are good ones, a few assume you have the money to purchase outside licenses for software programs -- kind of a turn off for me (did Pluth get paid to be a spokesperson?). One of the activities assumes you will be able to afford the Bravo! system with PING software. Another assumes you can purchase and use Raptivity! software. A third is focused on ResponseWare. While I appreciate the general ideas behind the activities, I do not like the fact I'm being presented activities that require spending additional money or purchasing additional hardware.

Aside from the third-party software activities, the book is solid, well-written, and does offer a myriad of activities most any facilitator using most any platform (sometimes with modifications) can easily implement. And create Webinars with WOW Factor.

Loved this book for ideas on how to add to and spice up virtual training for my organization. I am limited to what our software can do however it opened up many ideas to me and I have incorporated many of them into a Virtual Instructor Course I have rewritten for my organization.

Becky's work is so valuable, as is everything from the Bob Pike group. Now it's time to make it available electronically, especially as this is about an online teaching method! Hope it's coming soon...

This is a great book for people who are just starting in webinars and live online learning presentations. It gives some concrete ideas for how to incorporate interactivity and some interactive ideas that can be adapted for many situations. This is a great resource for people who aren't yet familiar or comfortable with presenting online and will really enhance my organization's webinars as we begin developing our online training program.
