Cloud Meeting and Webinar Service
In the Pandemic Era
Welcome to Our OLLI-GMU Friends and Partners !!
Getting Started -Folks with computers can just click the meeting / webinar link sent by email for a Zoom session, and 'skinny app' software will be downloaded to your computer. SmartPhones and tablets will require downloads from their app store. But more control and a better experience will result from getting a Zoom account with the submission of your email address and a password. Then you can host your own meetings, and visit with family and friends. Presenters should follow the 'personal account' path. See our 'details' offerings below. (Date References - yymmdd) PATACS has been using Zoom to share our programs with remote members since 2013, and holds most of our Board of Directors' meetings with this technology.
