In this video, I show you inside the video platform called Zoom, and go into depth on what it offers.
The biggest advantage of using Zoom is that it provides excellent connection, which is especially advantageous if you have low bandwidth. Additionally, the use of the annotations when sharing a screen (to be used like a whiteboard) can make the lesson much more interactive.
One cool feature is that you can record your lessons, which are saved on your hard drive. You can schedule recurring lessons, add events to your calendar, use chat and have it sent to you, and there are many other features too.
The one drawback in my view is that a lot of your learners won’t have heard of Zoom. This would mean having to help them getting set up.
Please let me know your thoughts below this video.
