We are delighted to announce our series of six online drop-in skill-sharing workshops focusing on Zoom technology. These short sessions will be a great opportunity to brush up your Zoom skills and to make your online events as professional and engaging as possible – and to ask our experts any of your technical questions relating to Zoom and live-streaming.
The workshops will be hosted by Fiona Frank, JSC’s Zoom guru, and Mike Beral, the JSC programme manager and expert on all things streaming. In the first workshop we will be looking at revising some basics – camera angles, good quality sound, and optimum lighting, and looking at different ways of screen-sharing including sharing sound, sharing video, and sharing PowerPoints so they don’t take over your whole screen. Topics being considered for future sessions include security issues, using the ‘host key’ to allow other people to host meetings using your account, running registration and attendance reports, streaming to YouTube and Facebook LIve, automatic transcriptions, spotlighting, using breakout rooms and pre-assigning breakout room names, setting up meetings with registration options. We’re happy to cover whatever topics you would like help with, just let us know by email, or come to one of the sessions.All are welcome to any or all of the sessions. We’re planning for the first half hour of each session to be ‘advanced’ zoom skills, and the second half hour, if needed, can be for beginners or intermediate zoom users, and can include extra time spent on any of the issues mentioned above, or on more basic Zoom skills.
If you like, you can just join us once to solve a burning question – or, with Zoom upgrading all the time, we think we can guarantee that you’ll learn something new each week – and you can keep in touch with the Jewish Scotland Connected project team too.
Meanwhile, if you would like to talk about hybrid events planning as part of your organisation’s programme planning, please get in touch with:
