Best Practices

Featured Category Post

As many of you have read, I've had some great conversations with my friends at Cisco Webex.  We use Webex to present to hundreds of people.  Over the last year I have met folks from their eLearning, and eMarketing groups and since then I have begun to think deeper about how we can use both synchronous and asynchronous communication to foster a community. 

Let me explain.  "Synchronous" simply means you are communicating back and forth and for the most part you are reponding to what was just spoken.  "Asynchronous" refers to how online communities work.You can go back in time and comment on something someone said 5 days ago.  You read the conversation in any order you want.    When chatting about this with my friend Dana Bowler at Webex we spoke for quite a while on how the synchronous events could draw the community together and re-engage them in the community after the event.  The result of that chat is a Webinar we will both Co-host.
