Overall Satisfaction with GoToWebinar

We Use GoToWebinar to share training sessions with employees who are unable to attend in person. It allows us to train employees across the state without having to incur travel costs and the lost time associated with the travel. It is used across the organization and is well-liked by all users.
  • Screen Share
  • Recording Training Sessions
  • I would like a bigger, bolder notification when "hands are raised" for questions or clarifications.
  • Positive - Reduced Travel Costs for Training
  • Positive - Reduced lost time associated with travel to in-person training
We love the overall ease and usability of GoToWebinar, including calendar integration, easy copy and paste of links, chat, recording, using templates, scheduling and starting webinars, and the attempt to gain engagements of participants. The only reason we wouldn't give it a ten would be because whenever you use a webinar versus in-person training, you do lose some engagement.
Webinar recordings have enabled us to share existing material with personnel who missed the training, without having to take someone else's time. It is super helpful and also gives us a clear record to refer back to
Easy and intuitive interface. Obvious and clearly labeled tools. Easy to access training for new users if needed.
  • Zoom
We like both, but prefer GoToWebinar for training because it is specially developed for that end, and tools like presentations, recording, raise the hand, etc. are just more geared towards that training portion rather than just conference calling.
We love GoToWebinar for training groups across multiple locations that need to receive the same message. It is not necessary if all of your attendees can be in the same room to receive training unless your trainer cannot be there. It is excellent to reduce travel costs associated with in-person training, but will never replace the benefit of engagement that in-person training can bring where possible or necessary for highly essential messages.
