They share information about Distance Learning from both the program and teacher perspective, and share recordings of their Zoom lessons. Teachers new to Zoom can see what a virtual classroom is like.

  • Distance Learning Ideas From the Field: Session 3 – In this webinar Tyler Morrone from Zoom shows tutors and teachers how they can use different Zoom features to deliver instruction to students. Zoom is a common platform being used in programs. If tutors and teachers are unfamiliar/uncomfortable with it, this will help.
