Here's part two of our ten tips for being a Zoom Rockstar!
Watch part one here.
Using Virtual Backgrounds
In your Account Settings, navigate to Virtual Background on the Meeting tab, and toggle the setting to on.
In a Zoom meeting, click the ^ arrow next to Start/Stop video (the camera icon). Click “Choose a virtual background…”
If prompted, click Download to download the package for virtual background without a green screen.
Then, choose a background from the available options, or click the plus icon to add your own image or video.
Sharing a Whiteboard
In your Account Settings, navigate to Whiteboard on the Meeting tab, and toggle the setting to on. (Note: If you’ve limited screen sharing in your meeting to the host, only the host will be able to share a whiteboard.)
In a Zoom meeting, click the Share Screen button on the meeting toolbar.
You’ll see a whiteboard that you can draw on and several different options for drawing tools.
To play Pictionary, take turns sharing a whiteboard and drawing something while the others in the meeting guess what it is. (There’s an online Pictionary clue generator available here: https://randomwordgenerator.com/pictionary.php)
To play Hangman, simply draw the Hangman board and the blanks for the clue on a single shared whiteboard.
Singing in the Spirit
We note in the video that singing together in Zoom (unless all but one singer are muted) is a recipe for cacaphony, due to time lags. However, several brothers and sisters have found that singing or praying in the Spirit can work in a Zoom meeting, even with everyone unmuted, because staying together doesn't matter as much. Some who have tried praying together in this way found it to be life giving!
