Zoom: The Evolution of Virtual Classroom

We live in a Covid-era where we have precisely moved everything from in-person to online. The education system has evolved from sitting in class room to sitting in the virtual classroom. What the world needed in this hour of needs was an efficient video collaboration system that is up-to-date, easy to use and bug free. What emerged as the winner of virtual classroom software was Zoom. Zoom is the most used video conferencing tool that provides a click-and-connect solution. You can use it for classroom teaching and learning, group discussions, or even one-on-one tutoring sessions. 


Zoom's basic accounts are free to use and sync with Google. If your district has district-managed Google educator accounts, it’s a seamless process, as it takes less than two minutes to sign-up. The host creates and controls the meeting. A participant is an invitee in a meeting scheduled by host with a host license. A participant does not require a Zoom account in order to join a meeting. The free plan allows up to 100 participants and you can host an unlimited meetings.

When teaching online, we must learn to do without many of the classroom management strategies we’ve become accustomed to. 
The shift to online learning has been extremely sudden. To teach effectively online, we need to see ourselves as leaders, rather than managers. For more Zoom Tips, contact us today.
