Meet Guided Breakouts: Comparing MaestroConference Video Vs. Zoom

Video Breakout Capabilities for Remote Collaboration
Reading Time: 9 minutes

If you are trying to engage a dozen or hundreds of people online AND interactively, all at once, you’re probably using virtual breakout rooms. Since that’s our specialty, we want to highlight and compare MaestroConference Video vs. Zoom breakouts.

As you might have seen, we polled zoom breakout users (500+ people responded, 200+ surveys submitted and still counting) about their biggest frustrations with zoom breakouts, and found that our platform already addresses 9 ½ of the top 10 concerns raised (with 9 already done, and the last one- customizable, visual timers- in development).

And an even more dramatic difference between zoom breakouts vs. MaestroConference Video is perhaps the crowning jewel for engaging many parallel groups, our new “Guided Breakouts.”  This newest feature (which no other platform offers) can be used to guide each breakout group through a sequence of questions, activities, or video instructions as designed and programmed by the host in advance. (So, no more “what was the question again?” in your participant breakouts.)

Let’s first take a look at the top 10 complaints that Zoom breakout users have expressed, and how MaestroConference Video compares, and then we’ll introduce you to Guided Breakouts (for your live AND asynchronous virtual events!).

Working from home? Here’s how to stay safe from cyberattacks

Reading Time: 4 minutesAs the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread worldwide, many governments are entering the delay phase of their response strategy to fight the pandemic. Social distancing measures have been implemented, which include shutting down non-essential services and telling people to work from home.

With the evolution of the Internet and advancements in digital technology, it has become easier than ever for us to get our routine tasks done from the confines of our home. In fact, more than 4.3 million Americans already work remotely at least half the time, according to Global Workplace Analytics. 

However, this convenience doesn’t come without downsides. Working from home, though convenient, can leave you vulnerable to security risks. This not only puts your personal information in danger but also could result in sensitive company data being breached. 

In this article, we’ll cover seven effective ways to work from home while staying safe against cyberattacks.
