If you haven’t Zoomed yet, you are rare!

More and more meetings, events, workshops, and groups are meeting remotely using Zoom.

Let’s dive into the back end of Zoom and learn about how to set up an account, what level of account to purchase, and what are the best settings for your meetings and events. We’ll discuss meeting best practices, like Zoom etiquette, how to keep people engaged with polls, and what makes a good Zoom experience for everyone, including the host.

This lecture is aimed at artists who may be interested in teaching/lecturing via Zoom in the future, or for those who just want to learn more about how Zoom works.
