Zoom – Webinar Resources

Zoom – The Basics for Engaging Teaching

The recording covers everything you need to know to start using Zoom with your learners. From setting up a Zoom session to finding your way around the basic tools and settings.

The recording has ‘Chapter’ markers represented by dots on the timeline bar, to allow you to skip to a specific topic, if you wish to do so.

The Transcript is on the right-hand side, where you can switch to see the Chat of participants asking questions as the session ran. Or you can play full screen and add CC which you will find at the bottom of the video screen.
