An introduction to Zoom

A quick introduction to some of the useful things Zoom can do

Like Comment


There have been a few questions recently about how to use Zoom, so I put this short (slightly goofy) video together yesterday. It covers a few of the useful things Zoom can do, but certainly not everything.

What other features of Zoom do you find useful? Or can you recommend other video conferencing software? I am happy to answer any Zoom related questions anyone has on here.

Hope everyone is staying safe and staying sane.

Warm wishes,

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam, a bit of a odd job title. My main role is to design, deliver and organise both our online and class-based training workshops. One of the best parts of my job is meeting other conservationists and learning about the work that they do. I really enjoy geeking out reading teaching theory and thinking about ways I can more creatively and engagingly deliver learning. Before working for WildTeam I did a PhD in invasive plants and human wildlife interactions. I find it really interesting to learn about the ways people interact with nature, both when nature is being wonderful, but also when is is being a bit annoying!

This is a really useful and informative video outlining clearly the tools within ZOOM for workshops, I was particularly interested in break-out rooms. We will be running a virtual workshop next month and this will allow us to prepare the tech thoroughly beforehand and hopefully allow things to run smoothly. Thank you for sharing this resource. Gwen
