Maximize your meetings with Zoom  The future is here and meeting virtually will be used more and more, especially as people find better ways, like Zoom, to keep meeting interesting and engaging. Meeting virtually doesn’t have to be boring talking heads on a screen! If you know how to use the tools Zoom provides, you can lead engaging meetings where everyone can participate.    This course takes you through the settings you’ll need to begin and the basics for sharing your screen.  You will learn about creating, using, and saving whiteboards for future reference and using polls and annotation to elicit feedback. Then it moves into more complex meeting structures like breakout rooms for small groups to collaborate – that you can visit and communicate with. It ends with guidelines, exercises, and games that be used virtually to heighten interest, participation and engagement.  This course contains the basics and more, including: 

  • Establish the appropriate settings for engaging meetings. 
  • Sharing a presentation from a desktop, laptop, or tablet. 
  • How to use and navigate the whiteboard and save it for future reference and learn how to use it in breakout rooms. 
  • Explaining annotation and encouraging learners to use it. 
  • How to create, launch, and share a poll then generate a report on the results. 
  • Assigning breakout rooms, set options, and communicate with them. 
  • Guidelines, exercises, and games that can heighten engagement.
