Hello Jake,

It's exciting to hear about your plan for OS online.  Here's my sales
pitch: QiqoChat might be a better fit for you than WebEx, because it makes
it easy for people to move themselves between video breakout rooms.

Yesterday I ran an hybrid online + in-person event which had some elements
of Open Space but we didn't describe it as Open Space.  There were 24
people in-person and 8 people online event.  It lasted 1.5 hours.   The
group was NEXUS for Change in Ohio.  The goal for the event was to explore
how to blend online & in-person participation.

We used the "liberating structure" called 1-2-4-All to choose 2 rounds of
breakout session topics.  This was the prompt: "What is the one question
that if I had an answer to it today, it would make all the difference
tomorrow?"  We used QiqoChat to let people move between breakouts.

If you skip to 37:44 that's when people start returning to the main online
space to discuss what they learned and felt during the experience.

Here's the video recording

you'd like to read the breakout room notes, visit the event page
create a free account, and then click "participate".
