This spring, many of us have had the opportunity to experience one or more online tools and platforms for meetings, training and even social events. As we transition more of our face-to-face interactions online, we’ll need to select the most appropriate platform to meet our specific needs.

This half-day session is a great opportunity to gain some experience and familiarity with five of the most common web conferencing tools available for meetings, training and webinars… without a sales pitch. 

  • Zoom
  • Adobe Connect
  • WebEx
  • GoToMeeting
  • Microsoft Teams

You will get a behind-the-scenes look at how you can use these tools in your workplace, and explore some key considerations when moving online:

  • How do I set up a session on each of the platforms?
  • What functionalities and engagement tools are in each platform?
  • How do I move my in-person sessions online?
  • Which platform will best meet my needs?

For this session, you will only need to connect through Adobe Connect. The other web conferencing tools will be demonstrated but not actually used by participants. A quick pre-workshop activity will ensure that your computer is set up with the technology requirements prior to the session.
