Learn to Zoom!

Zoom adds audio/video capabilities to the instructing/learning experience including the ability to share and annotate screens.

If you are interested in learning more, attend our upcoming webinar, Zoom: The Basics, which is perfect for beginning users. This webinar will cover setting up your own Zoom room, scheduling meetings and inviting participants, troubleshooting audio/video connections, using the Zoom tools, and best practices for hosting an online conference.

Intern insights

Social media analytics is a newfound enjoyment of mine. For the past month or so, I have focused on social media and marketing our workshops. The IT Training Department is offering shorter workshops, which allows for more “last-minute” tweeting and posting on social media to inform those who want to attend at the last-minute.

I’ve learned how to analyze posts on Facebook and tweets on Twitter to see when the majority of people are online and what type of posts reach the most people. It is quite interesting. Some marketers view how many people their tweets/posts reach as random . . . just pure luck; but without a doubt, I can say that there is much more to it than just luck.
