As the CMTO continues to closely monitor the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been following advice from the Australian Government Department of Health to ensure we are responding appropriately.
As part of our response plan, the CMTO has been progressing with training in a new online delivery format via ZOOM.
Below are some helpful tips and useful resources we have come across for trainers!
When conducting training via ZOOM, it is most beneficial to set the class up as a meeting rather than a webinar. The meeting function allows for an abundance of great features, including but not limited to:
- Breakout Rooms
- File Sharing
- Icon options (allowing students to raise their hand or share how they are feeling by selecting icons)
