One of the most common causes of this is running out of time; discussions take longer than you’d planned, computers take longer to ‘boot up’ than you’d planned- you know how it goes.
Wouldn’t it be good if you could set an agenda with topics/times and then display it via a data projector so that your class or all attendees at a meeting could see it (and keep to the times!)?
You may like to try NextUP. This is a really easy to use, free web based program that allows you to-
- create a meeting agenda
- add as many topics as you require
- assign a time to each topic (in minutes and seconds)
Once you have created your topics, assigned a time for each and then clicked ‘Create Agenda’ NextUp will count down each topic and move on to the next one automatically as the time allocated is used.
Give it a try, it’s free and very easy to use. leave a comment and tell us what you think.
