Get Ready to ZOOM!

Free

with Vanessa Richards

Get Ready to ZOOM!  We are here to support you!

Many of our offerings are now online.  To make the most of your Ellsworth Adult Ed courses, please register for this training so you are ready to join ZOOM with confidence, allowing your class or workshop to run smoothly for all involved. 

Online courses are generally shorter than in-person sessions, so we strive to do everything we can to ensure that the course starts on time by addressing technical issues in advance.  Our support is individualized and involves a telephone or email survey, resources (guides and videos), and in-person or online practice sessions.  Before your online courses begin, you will need a device with a camera and microphone (internal or external), and access to ZOOM on your device.  During this class, you will:

  • learn how to join a ZOOM meeting;
  • learn how to navigate the buttons on the ZOOM screen;
  • learn how to use communication tools like chat, hand raising and more; and,
  • gain an awareness of etiquette to make the most of the experience for you and for others.

This workshop will prepare you!  We will be there to support you so you can make the most of your Ellsworth Adult Education workshop, as well as connect with family, friends, religious services and meetings.  Please reach out to us!  

This is a live online or in-person training; ongoing enrollment. 

If you're interested in learning more about this offering, register here and we will call you to schedule a phone or in-person meeting with one of our advisors.
