Besides basic zoom etiquettes like good lighting, calm backgrounds. etc, that everyone should know by now? Just one: Switch off that cat filter! ;)

All great tips so far. One I'll add is use the out of frame space - pepper your notes around the screen to refer to during the call

Hi there!

Zoom experience might seem to be stressful, however, in practice, there are a lot of advantages - at least you can feel more confident being in a familiar environment. Just make sure to check your internet connection, presentation format etc. beforehand to avoid any technical problems and you are good to go!

Good luck,

GB

Hi there,

First, good luck!

Here are some quick tips:

  • Make sure you have a strong internet connection
  • Make sure your sound+video work
  • Get multiple monitors so you can look at 3 things at once (1 screen makes thought linear which is tough),
  • Have a good desk space and keep using paper for solving the case,
  • Make sure you'll be in a quiet space with no distractions
  • Still dress for the occasion
