This is a great idea. I have always really liked in-person trainings, but I think, given the current climate, that interactive web-based options may be our best best.
We've had success adding polls to webinars, to allow for some participant interaction. Also, asking some open-response questions has increased engagement. @Blake Kush do you have other ideas to share?

I agree and am finding that when there are items to break up the training sessions it also helps folx who otherwise would be overwhelmed speaking up in a large "crowd" participate. The other tool that could be useful is to break the group into smaller ones. I know that Zoom has this function, but I'm not sure if WebEx does. Do you know, @Blake Kush or @Training & Outreach?
@Lindsey Crusan-Muse I'm not sure if WebEx can split the group into smaller ones. I'll have to look into this. I do like the idea of polling, even if they polls are silly, they can break up the training and keep you engaged. At our Building and Managing Teams Remotely Webinar we hosted earlier this month, consultants Jenny & Alan had a fun poll regarding the best way to eat pizza that I thought was a great addition to the training.
@Lindsey Crusan-Muse I think WebEx has finally introduced breakout sessions to their Webex Meetings Platform. I haven't used it yet, but I look forward to trying it out! I find their polling function a little better than Zoom's, so I am happy to see that they have finally added the breakout function.
