Facilitating Online Small Groups Using RightNow Media

Page 1


For both recommended paths below, we recommend that group members find a way to communicate through chat or video conferencing to facilitate discussion about the video session and to work through any available leader’s guides or study guides. 
 
There are many different ways to connect online as a group, so find a platform that works best for your group—Facebook Messenger, iMessage, GroupMe, Zoom, Slack, Microsoft Teams, Skype, WhatsApp, Google Hangouts, etc. 
 
Here are two recommended paths for running a small group remotely:
 
1. Like a book club, each attendee would be responsible for finding a time throughout the week to watch a specific video session from RightNow Media. They can watch it from their own computer or mobile phone and find a time that works best for them, whether that’s over lunch, after the kids go to bed, or first thing in the morning. Then the group can determine a time to gather online to discuss the videos. 
 
2. The group can agree to log in to RightNow Media at the same time and watch the video session together even though they are not in the same location. In some cases, the group may want to connect via a chat or video conference app to discuss the video as it plays. But in most cases, the discussion would begin after each member has finished the video in their own location. 
 
For the best user experience, each person should log in to their own RightNow Media account and view the content for themselves directly from their own device. To align with copyright laws, RightNow Media content cannot be broadcast over video conferencing applications.
