Finding the Right Tools: Types of Tools


There are many types of tools that can support your needs:

  • Videoconferencing software, like Zoom or Webex Meeting, are great for smaller meetings up to 100 people. You may want to consider whether you have needs like supporting breakout rooms or need other interactive features.
  • Webinar platforms, like Zoom Webinar or Webex will support larger meetings over 100 people where more robust facilitation controls are needed and capacity matters.
  • For collaborative document editing, consider using whiteboard functionality or a tool like Mural or Miro, so groups can build a visual or brainstorm together.
  • Survey tools, like Poll Everywhere allow you to collect live data during the meeting and display it in a visually appealing way.
  • Explore livestreaming tools like Facebook Live and Youtube Live for plenary sessions
