You’re getting pretty used to zoom etc. BUT – the odd mishap still happens. Here are ways to handle your 2.0 virtual zoom glitches.
Problem: You’re in a “smart” building and if you don’t move around the room senses no one is there and the lights shut off. So – your room goes dark in the middle of your seated virtual training program.
Solution: Move around more! If you’re facilitating a training it’s best to stand up anyway – you’ll have more energy. And, know your surroundings.
Problem: You’re running a zoom meeting and your Internet goes down.
Solution: Always assign a co-host. Text the co-host to take over till you get back online.
Problem: You share your screen and inadvertently you share a confidential document.
Solution: Close out all running applications before any virtual meeting.
Problem: Your voice sounds tinny.
Solution: Use an external mic and keep the mic as close to your mouth as possible without being seen on the screen.
