Recording of today’s Tech Tuesday with Dave Biggs of MetroQuest

We had a great Tech Tuesday event today, with about 100 people participating in a stimulating webinar led by Dave Biggs, Co-Founder of MetroQuest. Thank you, Dave, for the great presentation — and thanks to everyone who participated!

MetroQuest public involvement software is recommended as a best practice by the APA, TRB, FWHA and other agencies. Dave shared with us some of what he’s learned about best practices for online engagement generally, and gave us a demonstration of the MetroQuest software, and walked us through several recent case studies.

You can watch the hour-long webinar now if you missed it. Plus, feel free to download Dave’s PowerPoint presentation here if you want to check out the slides without audio.

In a nutshell, MetroQuest software enables the public to learn about your project and provide meaningful feedback using a variety of fun and visual screens. It’s easy to mix and match screens to accomplish the engagement goals for each phase of the project from identifying and ranking priorities, to rating scenarios or strategies, to adding comments on maps and much more. To ensure the broadest participation, MetroQuest can be accessed on the web or mobile devices, at touchscreen kiosks and in engaging town-hall style workshops.

Via the comments below, Dave will be answering some additional questions that were submitted during the webinar that we couldn’t get to.  Feel free to add more questions, and of course to interact with Dave and others here!

If you’d like to contact Dave directly, he can be reached at Dave.Biggs@MetroQuest.com or (604) 317-6200.

NCDD’s Tech Tuesday events are meant to help practitioners get a better sense of the online engagement landscape and how they can take advantage of the myriad opportunities available to them. Keep an eye on the Events section of the site (ncdd.org/events) for upcoming Tech Tuesdays, Confab Calls and other events.

    Hello and Happy Holidays Folks! I wanted to write to let you know that I have not forgotten about your questions. The response to the session was fabulous and I’ve just managed to get through the many direct emails that I received following the session. I’m really enjoying engaging with NCDD members and look forward to getting to know each of you better. I will make it a priority to do just that in 2014!!! (Hey, it’s my first New Years resolution). As a first step I will post answers to the outstanding questions as early as I can manage in January. Until then, take good care and have yourselves a wonderful holiday.
