ZOOM ESSENTIALS

Online workshops are held LIVE on Zoom.  

About a week before the start of our retreat, I will send an email with our Meeting ID and passcode. Please save these and use them to access our meeting each day.

If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, please spend a few minutes 

In January 2023 we began offering recordings of the sessions. Each retreat is assigned a Google Classroom site, which will house the links for the video recordings. We ask that these links be kept for your personal, private viewing only.

NOTES ABOUT ZOOM:

  1. Zoom uses a lot of bandwidth so I recommend using an ethernet cable to connect to the internet for the most stable connection. If using WiFi try to make sure you are in a spot close to your router for the best connection. 

  2. Computers and laptops work best but you may also use tablets or smartphones, just be aware that the interfacing is more limited on these smaller devices. 

  3. Set up your device so that you can easily look from your own work to the screen where I will be demonstrating. This will help you follow along with ease.

  4. Our first meeting will begin a few minutes early for those who want to test their connection, otherwise I will remind us of the basics at the start of the first class.

  5. Most important rule: remain MUTED unless speaking, and be mindful of talking over others or myself.

 

An additional note on technology. Technology is a wonderful tool and has much to offer us, but it is also imperfect. Sometimes your computer will glitch out, sometimes mine will. Sometimes inexplicable issues will present. I invite us all to practice patience, a sense of humor and seeing God in all things – even frustration. We are in this together and will make it through ANYTHING together!
