Zoom is here to stay:  Interact and engage using Zoom!  Although it is a regular part of how we connect with one another today, it remains challenging to get people to interact and stay engaged! Tools like chat can be distracting, screen sharing can be complicated, and why would someone want to bother using the annotation tools? Let’s explore engagement techniques you can use immediately, while at the same time building your skills with Zoom. During this online workshop, learn to:

  • Engage and keep your focus sharp (as well as your audience).
  • Use interactive tools like screen sharing, chat, and annotation in a meaningful capacity.
  • Develop a professional presence on camera and setup your environment to easily communicate and effectively present online (audio, video, and screens).
