I spend most of my time on this blog writing about planning, preparing, and delivering live, interactive webinars. But there is another component to the presentation world that deserves attention – webinar replays. There are a surprising number of options open to you when thinking about how to archive your live presentation. What format should it be in? Do you edit it, or leave it exactly as it went out live? Where do you host it? Do you use an integrated tool from your webinar technology vendor, or third-party recording software? Should you break up your recording into smaller chunks? How about re-recording it just for archival purposes?
On Wednesday, August 19, I’ll be giving a webinar in conjunction with Brainshark concentrating on these topics. We’ll look at the considerations for making the on-demand version of your webinar as effective as possible.

We are trying to collect information on common habits regarding webinar replays before the event. I’ll use these to help focus my presentation on the information that will be of greatest help to you. We’ll also share the results for everyone to see. Even if you can’t make the live session, I would appreciate it if you could take two minutes to participate in the survey. We’re running it in an unusual format, using a recorded presentation to capture the information, so you might like to try it just to get an idea of a new way to interact with users in an asynchronous mode.

Thanks for your participation, and I hope to see you online on August 19!
