Welcome

The Online Presenters Toastmasters Club caters to those who give online presentations professionally, or aspire to do so, whether that means public webcasts and live video or internal company video conferences and screen sharing sessions. We welcome experienced Toastmasters with an interest in learning those skills, as well as future Toastmasters with relevant experience (how to join).

In this online club, the medium really is the message (or at least a big part of it). Online Toastmasters clubs are a new phenomenon, and other clubs are using the medium to make the Toastmasters experience available to people who can’t attend location-based reasons for reasons related to timing, geography, or a disability. We recognize the value of that approach, but this club will be dedicated to understanding how the online medium is different and how we can communicate effectively with technology in between us and  our audience.

The Timer tracks the time for each portion of the meeting and signals the speakers and functionaries so they know when their time is up. For green/yellow/red visual cues, please use an object as big as your head or a similarly prominent webcam effect. For an audible cue, tapping a pencil or a knife against a glass produces a chime that is not too distracting.
