Like in person meetings, online meetings are headed by a chairperson who works to keep the meeting running smoothly. A topic is introduced and others take turns sharing on the topic. At some meetings, the chairperson will also present the opening and closing statements by copy-pasting text files. Meetings last approximately one hour. Online meetings, unlike online chat, introduce a topic and allow only one person to share (or type their comments) at a time.
