Sneak Peek: The Engagement Dashboard

Adobe Connect has a huge number of features dedicated to helping hosts and presenters engage with their attendees. The use of polls can help capture information and guide the flow of a webinar. Chat and Q&A provide a tremendous amount of interactivity that helps differentiate a live session from an on-demand recording. Custom pods can do just about anything – including entertain and engage.

In this sneak peek, I look at a new pod under development that can help a presenter or host understand the level of engagement in their webinar or virtual classroom. Providing realtime feedback can help hosts optimize the experience for every participant.

    Is there a reason why Engagement Dashboard is not available in ordinary meeting?

    For now the pod measures engagement by no of q&a, and poll answers. Do you plan to implement chat activity in engagement count?

      The engagement dashboard will take chat activity into account when calculating engagement. The video lists some of the types of activities used for calculation – but is not a complete list.
