Employees: Zoom Question and Answer Open Sessions to Prepare for Remote Meetings

Posted on 3/18/20 3:57 PM

In preparation for employees having access to appropriate technologies as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the IT Support Center has created a resource page for IUP employees to help them prepare as much as possible for social distancing while still ensuring successful experience with IUP technologies. See IT Remote Continuity Plans for Employees.

Also, the IT Support Center will begin to offer Zoom Question and Answer Open Sessions today, where any student and/or employee can connect to a Zoom meeting and ask questions, test their connections, etc. Users can connect to the virtual Zoom session from any device (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.). Users can do this for a single minute to test connections, or stay for the full length of the session to hear what others are asking or ask any questions they have, and then disconnect. It will be an opportunity to connect and practice muting audio/video, asking questions in the chat area, viewing participants, etc. These are designed for any user to gain a comfort level with the Zoom service.

These virtual Zoom Q & A Open Sessions are scheduled as follows:

  • Wednesday, March 18, 2:00-4:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, March 19, 4:00-6:00 p.m.
  • Friday, March 20, 9:00-11:00 a.m.
  • Sunday, March 22, 1:30-3:30 p.m.

As always, technology support pages are always available at the IT Support Center. In addition, should you have any questions or require support for IUP technology resources, please open an ihelp ticket.
