Overall Satisfaction with GoToWebinar

Sometimes I find you can get into loops with GotoWebinar that you can only get out of by quitting the program and coming back in. Setting up a webinar from scratch is a lot of steps that are not always clear. It would be nice if the organizer would be walked through each step for setting up a program from A to Z. Right now, you have to go into multiple screens and have knowledge of of GotoWebinar to easily set up a new webinar from scratch. I wish that the ability to customize emails and images gave more options.
We use GotoWebinar to provide webinars to our customers, both students and educators in the emergency medical services market. We use it as an education tool to promote sound educational practices with educators and we do online tutoring with students for the EMS national certification exam. It allows us to promote our knowledge and shows us as an industry leader in EMS education.
  • Polls
  • Interactivity with attendees
  • Ease of use with multiple panelists in different locations
  • UI can be clunky for many users
  • Having to download additional files to join GotoWebinar can be confusing
We use Join.me for demos of our products. The ease of a special URL and desktop window share on the fly is why we use Join.me. GotoWebinar is more for promoting larger events in advance and not for use on the fly.
We use it for 2 purposes that have worked very well
1) Large group live webinars
2) Small group training

The ability to record webinars for rebroadcast is also useful.
