The Pros & Cons of Zoom training
Although no training format is perfect, we believe in these uncertain times that Zoom has the edge in facilitating a consistent training programme that is not subject to last-minute cancellations.
How to access a Zoom Training session
1. Create a Zoom Account (it's free to sign up)
Please make sure Zoom is downloaded onto your laptop or phone now so you will be ready. You will find it in the App Store/Google Play.
For the laptop, you can download it from the links at the bottom of this page – https://zoom.us/meetings.
2. Test it
If this is new to you, why not have a test run? Test your audio and video are set up correctly at www.zoom.us/test. Then, why not set up a meeting and get a friend or family member involved?
3. Join your training session
In the days before the training, your agency will send you an email with a joining link. A couple of minutes before the session is due to begin; you will paste the link into your browser.
