In lieu of on-site services, we are currently leaning toward doing pre-recorded Sunday services and a live stream(s) during the week that would be more informal and hopefully a little more interactive. This is all very new to us.
I am on the lookout for a good way to manage incoming texted questions during a live stream. Where someone would see everything coming in and be able to select which ones they want to have appear for a presenter to see while they are doing an informal online teaching. Does this kind of thing exist in an easy-to-setup way?
And, could we take this to the next level, or am I dreaming - an easy way for someone to join in with a video call, where a screener could decide if and when to share that call for others on the live stream?
Hey Erik, a free option is a teams live event which can have a presenter and chat roll.
All you’d need is a webcam and mic on the presenters computer. E1 is free for Charity & Nonprofit (and for everyone for 6 months because of the virus).
Ping @benfifield or me if you want to chat locally.
