I have become familiar with a similar format, having taken on-line courses via Zoom in education and mental health. In my continuing education courses there have been two main presenters and then comments/questions by the on-line participants/viewers. If handled the correctly it can be a good learning experience both for the presenters and the viewers. I think the Friday Forum Book Group was handled very well in a one-hour format. The moderator did an excellent “job” with the introduction to the book topic and allowing the group time to add their summary and viewpoints. My only “problem” was not setting myself up to take notes on some of the comments and quotes. It was well worth the time to view this Book Group presentation.
