Zoom Explainer. BNSS is conducting talks and meetings using ‘Zoom’. Members are sent a ‘link’ via email 1-2 days before the event.
What is Zoom? – Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others – either by video or audio-only or both.
Can you join a Zoom meeting? Many BNSS members have joined BNSS Zoom talks on Tuesday evenings but we would be happy to welcome more of you.
- Did you know that you can join these Zoom talks with a smart phone, tablet, laptop or other computer?
- Did you know you don’t need a camera or microphone to participate in the Zoom meetings?
