How to Use Zoom for Living Room Conversations

April 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT


3:00 PM EASTERN / NOON PACIFIC
 (adjust for your time zone)

Hosts will be available for an additional 30 minutes after the training for Q&A

Do you facilitate ongoing in-person Living Room Conversations and wish to bring your group online using Zoom? Or, are you considering starting your own online Living Room Conversation? The staff at Living Room Conversations would like to share what they have learned about hosting successful conversations using Zoom.

This training will cover the basics of preparing for a Zoom call by downloading Zoom, connecting to and testing your audio and video via computer, tablet or phone, and what to do when you or another participant cannot be heard or seen.  It will also cover using specific Zoom features such as chatting, muting and unmuting, changing participant views, renaming yourself, toggling between tabs if your screen seems to disappear, and joining and leaving a breakout room. Come with your questions and be ready to practice and get more comfortable with Zoom!

No, however, our work is made possible through the donations of generous supporters – who might include you! You can give when you scroll down to register for this event by selecting the “donation ticket” option.

How long do I have to register? 

You have up until 4 hours before the event’s start time to register.  

What do I need to participate? 

  • You will need a device with a webcam  (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone) to participate and be seen by other participants. A Zoom link to join the training will be sent to you the day before and again one hour before the training begins.
