Excited to participate!  I'm curious to see how schools will adapt to the new norm of hybrid learning - live / remote - and to gain more insight into  the critical LMS/SIS and other third-party applications required to deliver a superior admin / teacher / student experience.

I'm glad Zoom is doing this...we're all fighting common battles, we have to stop fighting them alone.

 

I'm at a more traditionally minded school which is slow to adopt anything technology.  I'm still curious as to how far our faculty will go to keep integrating Zoom into their classes, even as we head back to some kind of "normal." I'm optimistic.

Thank you for sharing! You are not alone...  

Feel free to ask any questions here around this exact topic. I am sure all of us have observations, and experiences that would help inform. 

From my conversations, keeping Zoom as your campus communications platform is where it starts. Bringing guest lecturers, digital field trips, community members into the class for richer experiences in learning. Other uses commonly seen are parent teacher conferences, IEP meetings, tutoring, Club and activity events, live streaming sports and performances to your schools Facebook page. Admin teams can save time and money by having Zoom meetings or Zoom Room spaces for wireless sharing and no more mileage reimbursements. Zoom Phone creates a seamless communications tool, with very advanced features like E-911 and nomadic 911. Call masking, and full feature set from anywhere in the world.
