This is a special development opportunity for Canisius College Administrative Associates:  Learn to Web Conference!  Meeting via the internet is now popular across campus, as more and more faculty and staff adopt web conferencing to save time and expense, and bring guests from around the world into classes.  In general, knowing how to schedule and manage web meetings is a valuable business skillset.   

In this workshop, you’ll become familiar with Zoom, our web meeting and conference provider here at Canisius.  You’ll learn how to schedule meetings, inviting participants, and make subsequent changes to meeting plans when needed, even on short notice.  Plus, you’ll discover the various things you and your meeting participants can do, such as turn on and off webcams, present a slideshow, and generally manage meetings smoothly and professionally.  

Unlike a lot of more specialized skills, web conferencing is useful across a wide variety of jobs, from day-to-day communications to special projects, impromptu meetings to big events.  While the technology will likely evolve, most software for running web meetings is quite similar or will be so in the future, so learning it now means learning new features or other applications will be easier.  

So that they are highly interactive, space in these workshops is limited.  Please RSVP by emailing Mark Gallimore.  

Two web conferencing workshops are available in February:

  • Thursday, February 1st at 3:00 – 4:30 PM
  • Monday, February 26th at 3:00 – 4:30 PM
