Stand and Deliver vs. Question and Answer
- 1. Vance's visit to Taiwan, and Curtis' presentation, stirs this pot.
Feedback is appreciated.
2. Teresa's comments intrigue because they bring to mind the
questions of sync vs. async, real time vs.on demand, Stand and
Deliver vs Question and Answer, One-to-Many vs. Many-to-Many. My
question to her, and others who participated virtually in real time, -
Would you have benefited more if the presentation
was available in advance with the certain
knowledge that the real time experience would
have been almost entirely devoted to Question
How important is interaction with the presenter and others in the
audience in real time?
3. Which method - text or voice - do you prefer for the interactive portion?
4. If voice, can you put a *dollar* value on same? i.e. how much
would you have been willing to spend to talk on the phone, per
minute, with either Vance or Curtis in real time?
5. If the assumption is that interactivity with the presenter is a
good thing, and the assumption that multi-media presentations are
relatively easy to put up, (and far easier to deliver for async than
on-demand viewers) shouldn't the standard for great real time
presentations be that the multi media presentation be put up well in
advance and the real time period reserved, almost exclusively, for
6. Or, because since childhood we have been raised to go to physical
events where the Guru is on a stage and the audience is expected to
sit quietly and listen, that WITHOUT a real time Stand and Deliver
hoopla, few will pay any attention ? i.e. if all you do create your
presentation, upload same, send an email and say "look here anytime
you want"..that few will view?
7. In real time, what role do blogs play? Should play?
P.S. I have admired Webheads for a very, very long time. Because I
don't teach English, have heavy work pressures, and MUST find time
away from this damn computer screen, I don't attend your Sunday
events. But I applaud your work and learn a lot reading your posts.
