80 participants attended the virtual conference and left with a clear idea of PBS's objectives, several plans of action, and an energized state of mind. PBS was able to host a successful virtual event using Shindig's interactive features to broadcast speakers, present decks, field text and video chat questions, create social learning groups, and bring audience members on stage.
