HOW TO HOST A FREE ZOOM GROUP CALL

Posted by Apartment LIfe on Sep 2, 2020 10:54:00 AM

UPDATED APRIL 7, 2020 - DUE TO “ZOOM BOMBING”, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING THIS ARTICLE FROM ZOOM ABOUT SAFEGUARDING YOUR VIDEO CHATS.

Zoom (or any other video conferencing app) is a great way to “connect” with neighbors without the face-to-face piece during this unique time. Here’s some helpful info!

WHAT’S ZOOM?

It provides remote conferencing services that combines video conferencing, online meetings, chat, and mobile collaboration. It’s a fantastic way to stay connected with your residents “face to face” without actually being face to face! You can chat, share stories, check in, share experiences, etc.

Note: Zoom has a 40 minute “limit” for free accounts.


HELPFUL LINKS TO GET YOU STARTED


HOW CAN WE INTERACT DURING THE CALL?

  • Enable polling and Q&A
  • Allow virtual hand-raising
  • Chat feature
  • Talking to one another through using audio
  • Seeing one another through video

**As with all events/activities, please be sure to sync with your program director and property manager on all events/activities!
