Has your local society been forced to cancel a planned event due to the CoronaVirus concerns? Would you like to convert it into an online video conference? If so, how do you plan to do that?
Many variables are involved, of course. However, you can learn how one (non-genealogy) organization managed to hold a well-attended online event on short notice.
Quoting from the article by Alan Soon in the NiemanLab web site:
“If you’re reading this, you’re probably trying to figure out how to do your first online event. We decided to do Splice Low-Res because (1) we needed to learn how to do this, as COVID-19 leads us deeper online, and (2) we wanted to see how the media startup community was holding up.
“We haven’t figured it all out — but this is what we’ve learned so far. Let us know where you think we could have done better.”
This article will not answer all your questions but it probably will provide some things to think about and, in some cases, will describe how someone else solved the problems.
