You know we have a few customers using Jive for year round virtual event engagement. I can come back and add some additional stories.
But in the meantime, Brace Rennels from EMC could offer something. They've been very thoughtful in this area and was able to quantify the business benefit as a results. Brace, can you add some insights?
Also, Jive's very own Ryan Rutan had been responsible for Jive's JiveWorld experience in the community and in our mobile app. He might be able to help with some killer best practices as well.
We use events/webinars heavily on element14 and have a specific area for them; http://www.element14.com/community/community/events
To help with people signing up, we customised the Event module to integrate with WebEx.. so people don't have to leave our site to sign up separately with WebEx.
That is pretty awesome Matt! I voted your idea up. I would love to see that built into Jive.
