Exciting new features with the latest ZOOM update Part Two. Plus how to merge the phone-in participant with their video. This is especially important for breakout rooms. Also, you would be amazed at how much you can do from your phone! See the ‘Phone-in’ Participant perspective in this video tutorial. Including wrap up thoughts and tips on using the latest features in ZOOM.
Recap Highlights & Tips
Sharing in Breakout Rooms: Must check ‘Multiple Participants Share’ in settings
Pound, #, Hashtag – all the same symbol 😉
Try logging in different ways, such as calling in, so that you understand your participant’s perspectives and can explain the steps they need to take
Give clear instructions for breakout groups ahead of time, and ask your participants to take a picture of the ‘steps slide’ or provide them in a handout ahead of time
Say what slide or what page # you are on, when talking about handouts and workbooks
Spotlight feature. Good for recording, not good if the facilitator wants to see the participants
If you can NOT merge phone and video boxes, then move both manually into breakout rooms
Have people rename their phone number with their name and ‘phone’ so that you know who to move into breakout rooms
Write down people’s phone numbers so you know who can be let back in from the waiting room, if they have internet issues or leave the meeting
Second device, or phone should have the ‘sound’ off, so there isn’t an echo
If people call in from a company or work phone system, they may not know their own phone number to rename it. (Process of elimination)
We do more than ZOOM, but like to keep you in the loop with changes on that platform. Another update is available now. Please note that if EVERYONE in your meeting does not have the latest update, then all the new features will not be available to everyone. https://zoom.us/updates
