Building Design a Database for Live Session Questions

Years ago when we did online presentations or live Office Hours webcasts, attendees would type their questions into the “Questions” section of whatever webcast platform we were using – WebEx, GoToWebinar, Zoom.

This sucked because:

People would put questions all over the place (Questions, Chat, email, etc) It was hard to keep track of which questions were still left to be answered People couldn’t write questions in advance People kept copy/pasting the same questions over and over because they’d think we hadn’t seen them We didn’t have a way to tell which questions other folks wanted us to answer
