Hi to all;
Rob Austin here.
I work for the American Job Center system, which is the national arm of the Dept of Labor.
They have decided to keep centers closed for 2021.
So all workshops need to be delivered via Zoom.
Many of the unemployed attending these workshops will be mid to late career workers. With average tech skills at best. The design that we have developed has videos, whiteboard, google docs and break out rooms. Workshop size 12 to 16.
We have put a paid co-host into our proposal. The Directors are questioning the need of a co host. They say the other vendors are not including that.
However, the other vendors are delivering a webinar. Which amounts to a lecture via a static power point slide show. Participant functions are simply mute/unmute the mic. We anticipate all kinds of trouble shoot issues when the particpants have to use different mediums. Thus the co-host can be a great asset in letting the class be delivered smoothly!
Any professional opinion on whether a co-host is needed?
