Hosting Zoom Meetings with Jamili 
Mar 11 | 10:00 -11:00 AM | Zoom 
 
Zoom. Love it? Hate it? It is a part of our lives for a while to come. Many of us find that we’re the host on a zoom meeting, and we don’t know how to do some basic administrative tasks. Come play with being a zoom host and practice: 
  • Claiming the host role
  • Making breakout rooms
  • Deciding on security options
  • Ending a meeting quickly if you’re “zoom bombed”
