teambits now integrates the Zoom web application. It’s never been easier to have a video conference with interactions, quizzes and voting. Set up a full-fledged meeting digitally – see, talk, interact and vote. All this whether five or 500 participants. Of course, still indispensable, from a safe distance. With the integration of Zoom, teambits achieves the claim of a complete basic equipment for hybrid and virtual events.
Since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic we have been receiving the same request: A purely web-based virtual conference with interaction and event app functionality on German servers. In a single browser window, with free switching between plenary sessions (one speaker with presentation) and group work phases, and constant access to the Event App. The solution must also be secure and data protection compliant.
Now it’s here: The combination of Yotribe and teambits realizes this wish.
It concerns public limited companies, cooperatives, limited liability companies, associations, foundations and condominium owners’ associations – in short, any form of organization in which members are allowed to vote on what happens in the organization.
The restrictions used to contain the coronavirus are a challenge for small and large organizations. Meetings are limited to only a few people at once: a large group of members, decision-makers, and voters must not be permitted to meet in person. This makes an election difficult – it fails due to the manner in which it is conducted. Electronic voting provides a convenient alternative.
Quiz your audience during your teambits presentation: We recently started offering the quiz as a stand-alone meeting type. Here we describe what it is about, what it is good for and how it works.
Create interactive meetings and presentations or a special break – sometimes it just needs more energy in the room. It doesn’t matter where you work from, or whether you’re interacting with your audience or workgroup virtually or in real time. Quizzes also bring playful elements of competition and interaction to your home office. They also offer great entertainment! Continue reading Quiz your audience!
Only at the beginning of the year teambits 7.5 brought great Q&A and polling features. Collecting, clustering and prioritizing with the digital moderation app became child’s play. Today teambits 7.6 is live – again with fine new features around voting and quizzes.
We invite you to get to know teambits in a web seminar. We offer our live webinars on request also in English. Test some features of teambits with our managing director Florian and ask all your questions!
In the article Making virtual meetings and online events interactive with teambits we have already presented several possibilities of using teambits in parallel with common video conferencing tools such as Zoom, WebEx or Microsoft Teams. Using the example of Zoom, we now show a simple but impressive way to integrate your preferred video conferencing solution directly into teambits. For your participants, this results in a seamless interaction of proven live video streaming and flexible interaction possibilities (voting, Q&A sessions, brainstorming, etc.).
What would communication be without personal conversation? These days we all use video calls and messages with words and pictures to keep in touch with each other. Social Distancing makes us aware that we humans need social contacts as much as we need food.
But what if it is about communication in large groups? And what if these groups can no longer come together in a physical location? At side places of work meetings and events we talk, laugh together, applaud punch lines, rethink points and whisper. We believe that this must also find its place in virtual space. In teambits this place is the social wall.
With the rapid spread of COVID-19, live events are giving way to a format that brings people together online instead: virtual events. With teambits you can participate live in your digital format.
Events are currently being cancelled worldwide and employees are being sent to the home office. Event planners and group leaders are looking for the best way to convert their conference or meeting from analogue to digital. Maybe you too? Because you know: Fast and effective communication and coordination are among the most important tasks in a company. This is also true, or especially if your employees do not come together at the same workplace.
In the following three chapters we will describe everything you need to know to create your virtual meeting with teambits interactively.
The new teambits software is a prodigy of method diversity in digital moderation. Classical methods such as brainstorming (collecting), card queries in sense units or matrix (clustering) and voting (prioritizing) are regularly used by everyone who works with groups. With teambits, this can now be done digitally instead of on a flipchart or pinboard.
But what exactly can you achieve with collecting, clustering and prioritizing? What good is it that teambits can link each of these interactions ingeniously simple? How does the software help to design good processes? And does it have advantages to design moderation processes digitally?
Moderators and group leaders ask themselves these questions during the conception phase before an event. They are the specialists for methods and are responsible for the positive management of group interaction. Ideally they would like to lead a productive process with motivated people. In order for everyone to contribute, it is important that the methods are chosen appropriately.
