Zoom has exploded onto the scene this past week, fueled by the growing COVID-19 pandemic. While there are plenty of user guides out there, and a never ending hoard of newly ordained "experts" keen to show you the light, we thought we would try and make it even simpler, and of course, free.
If you haven't heard yet, Zoom is the hot new tool everyone is using to go remote, yet for many of us, Zoom isn't that new at all. As leaders in remote working for over a decade, our team have always collaborated using one video conferencing tool or another. But when Zoom broke onto the scene in c. 2013-15, we knew we'd found what we were looking for.
Zoom allows you to join and schedule video meetings with other users, and depending on your plan, you can have 30+ people on the call. You can join from desktop or mobile to see people or share your screen, and you have the ability to receive audio via the web, or by dialing into a more classic conference call number by phone.
If anyone is struggling to get setup with Zoom during this time, we would be more than happy to extend our assistance free of charge. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please get in touch via the About page.
