Viewing webcasts as part of a group, such as a work team, can often enhance the experience by fostering local discussions pertaining to the content. Such discussions can generate questions, foster collaboration, improve social bonds among the group members, and raise matters pertaining to applying the content for the specific goals and purposes of the group. However, the scheduling and interactive mechanisms related to webcasts are designed for a user viewing the webcast alone, without the presence of others. This disclosure describes techniques to support synchronous webcast viewing by a group of people and corresponding calendaring mechanisms to support organizing and scheduling such small group get-togethers.
