As part of our WorkCast’s integrations, our online event platform allows you to customize your event by embedding widgets or third-party apps directly into your registration form or online event auditorium.
Using widgets as part of your webinar or online event can encourage increased engagement with attendees, offer valuable insights, and make a traditional webinar much more interactive. But, first things first...
A widget is a broad term that refers to either any graphical user interface (GUI) element or a small software application that displays information or provides a specific way for users to interact with it.
There are several types of widgets and they can be as simple as a button, scroll bar, dialog box, toggle buttons, social media feed and more. However, you can get more sophisticated widgets, like a search box, map, clock or unit converter - so the type of widgets you use depends on your specific needs and goals.
Most operating systems include a set of ready-to-use widgets that programmers can incorporate into an application, which is often as simple as copying and pasting some text/code into the body of your website. But, new widgets can also be created.
The WorkCast platform integrates with custom widgets, like your social media feeds, tag management solutions, video, Q&A and polling apps and more.
Custom widgets allow event admins and presenters to integrate with external systems and bring information from these systems into the Workcast platform. These widgets can easily be copied and pasted into your registration page or auditorium and work like a small application that you can use to enhance the event experience.
However, if you have any other platforms you wish to integrate with, then you can speak to one of our experts today.
