Blog on latest technology : ZOOM cloud meeting
In-person training is one of the most effective ways to on board new employees and get them up to speed on your company, processes, and teams so they can start contributing quickly. But that’s not easy in this time of social distancing, office closures, and widespread work-fromhome mandates, and many organizations must learn how to effectively deliver this critical training on the fly. Zoom is an amazing technology for hosting virtual events!
Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing platform that can be used for video conferencing meetings, audio conferencing, webinars, meeting recordings, and live chat.
Zoom provides the first Unified meeting experience platform that brings HD video conferencing, mobility and web meetings together as a free cloud service. So you can have crystal-clear video conversation and high quality screen sharing, anytime, from anywhere.
Zoom was founded in 2011 by Eric Yuan, a lead engineer from Cisco Systems and its collaboration business unit WebEx. The service started in January 2013, and by May 2013 it claimed one million participants.
In early 2020, usage of Zoom increased sharply as schools and colleges adopted the platform for remote work in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, rising 67% from the start of the year to midMarch.
Zoom offers free video conferencing for up to 100 participants with a 40-minute time limit. Paid subscriptions are available to allow more participants, increase the time limit, and obtain more advanced features.
In nutshell, working from home or attending a virtual training can be difficult. Concerns around engagement, participation, difficulty in delivering the right messages, and retention of information are all relevant. With the help of Zoom, you too can take in-person training and turn it into a 100% virtual and engaging reality!
