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.

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.
I recently started teaching an online course. After reading this book, am looking forward to implementing many of the ideas shared in the text.
I recommend the book to anyone who is interested in learning how to enhance their webinars and/or online classes.
