Skype for Business - Add a Q&A Session to a Skype Meeting Broadcast
You can add a question-and-answer session to your Skype Meeting Broadcast. By adding a Q&A session to your meeting, you enable attendees to participate by asking questions, posting comments, and getting replies from the moderator. Presenters and other participants can read the posts as they come in and respond to them in real time. This also allows for dynamic meeting content because a presenter can be altered whether more elaboration or clarification is needed.
