If you’re having an online meeting, there are a few tricks you can use to make your meeting more fun. Bring in some music, play a turn-based game, or add a virtual dance party. You can also use a webcam to play games with your team. You can even use a virtual credit card to buy supplies, so you can take the virtual meeting anywhere.
Turn-based or asynchronous games
Online team building games are a fun way to boost morale and employee engagement. They can be played over email, Slack, or video conference calls. Games should be easy to play and quick so that remote workers can participate in them with ease. Some fun ideas include icebreaker questions, group photos, and video games.
|Have you tried Meetn, the new online meeting platform?
It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.
“Snapshot of My Life” is a game in which participants are asked to bring a photo of themselves that says something about them. They then upload it to the shared workspace or whiteboard. The pictures can be anything that describes who they are. This allows people to express their own experiences and makes them feel like they are being heard. The game is also asynchronous, meaning that the conversations can continue after the meeting ends.
Having a virtual dance party
One great way to make online meetings more fun is to throw a virtual dance party. You can choose a theme and invite everyone to participate. You can choose from music from a specific decade or genre, and you can even have a dance party with glowsticks.
You can choose to include the virtual dance party as a main event or as a fun extra. A virtual dance party can be a standalone event or a quick one-minute session during a virtual meeting. If you have a large group, it may be best to have both a DJ and an MC. A DJ and MC combo can focus on song selection and mixing. Make sure the audio quality is good and encourage participants to tune in with their computer or stereo.
Having a movie night
One way to make online meetings fun is by having a movie night. This can be as simple as watching a movie together and chatting about it afterwards. This method can work well for both groups as long as everyone has a device that they can use to watch movies. You can use a streaming service such as Netflix to stream movies and have a group chat while watching them.
You can even schedule a movie night using Zoom. All you need to do is schedule it in advance and invite your colleagues or clients. Choose a movie that everyone can enjoy. You can screen share so that everyone can watch it with you.
