Experimenting with an “Audience View” for KaiNexus Webinar Presenters in Zoom


I wrote a blog post that was published last week on the KaiNexus Blog:

In a nutshell, the problem statement can be seen in this visualization of what one normally sees as a webinar presenter:

Doing a webinar presentation is like presenting into a black hole. Your presentation goes in, but no feedback comes out.

Taping a photo of an audience to the monitor is not the most effective countermeasure.

But I think I came up with something that works better. It doesn't require Zoom to add new features — it's just a matter of how you use it.

Read more in the blog post. I'd love to hear what you think.
