The State of the Virtual Meeting (9/21/23)

Since 2020, every working professional has received a crash course in how to use Zoom to hold virtual meetings. By now, we hopefully all know how to do basic things like share screens and make our backgrounds look professional. However, this working knowledge doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re using virtual meeting tools as effectively as possible. In this seminar, we’ll look at what’s new with Zoom and Microsoft Teams, the two most frequently used video conferencing software platforms. We’ll discuss when you might want to use one or the other, and how you can take your working knowledge a step further. We’ll also discuss virtual meeting etiquette, because it never hurts to be reminded of social courtesies that may not come naturally in a digital landscape.
