Welcome: Remember to introduce yourself.
I have been conducting virtual classroom training for many years. I have used Adobe Connect and WebEx Training as my virtual platforms for the vast majority of that time. I am currently facing a potential platform change to Zoom. In my research and testing of Zoom as a virtual classroom and I am struggling with two particular aspects, and I am hoping to learn from the experiences here in the community.
Adobe Connect and WebEx Training allowed me to the following
1. Load content slides vs share
2. Stay in the "structure" of the room (menus, annotation toolbar, chat, etc).
I am currently entrenched with WebEx Training. I can load my slides and the room layout is consistent for both me and my participants. This allows for easy instructions, minimal UI troubleshooting, and questions, In my testing of Zoom, I have struggled with the numerous layout shifts and movement of buttons like chat and annotations. We use the chat and participant panels extensively for communication, hand raises, green check checks, red X's, etc.
The potential for participant confusion and troubleshooting issues is concerning. Would you mind sharing some of your experiences in shifting to Zoom from other platforms? What has been your experience in using Zoom in general as a full-fledged virtual classroom?
