Talking Tech 20th June 2017

June 21, 2017

This show is all about the fantastically accessible online meetings and webinar platform: Zoom: which Vision Australia is now using, and purely by accident, an audio book just produced by Jonathan Mosen on this system was just released.

 

In this show, we talk to Jonathan about his book:

“Meet Me in the Cloud - A Guide to Zoom Cloud Meetings” by Jonathan Mosen.

 

For further info about the book, you can go to:

You can download a free sample of the book which shows how to connect to a Zoom meeting in Windows or iOS:
