Avoid Technical Issues

Empowered 24/06/2024

Avoid Technical Issues

  • Try logging in for a trial period regardless of whether you have prior experience with online meetings. 
  • Check that the microphone, camera, and screen sharing are all operational.
  • Make sure you’ve already downloaded the necessary application.
  • Close any background programmes that are causing your connection to become overloaded.
  • Turn off the cameras and ask the individuals you’re chatting with to do the same if you’re connecting from a slow network.
  • Connect with a cable if you’re attending a crucial meeting or giving a presentation; your connection will be more stable.
  • To avoid echo problems, use headphones.
  • If connecting from a mobile device, ensure you’re carrying a fully charged battery or charger.

Virtual Me 

Reflection

  • What virtual meeting tools do you currently use?
  • What are the most challenging aspects of using these tools during meetings?
  • What are some best practices you have learned for conducting virtual meetings?
  • Are there any areas where you feel you lack knowledge or skills when it comes to virtual meetings, and how do you plan to improve on them?

Action

  • Develop a plan for ensuring effective communication and participation during virtual meetings. This could include setting ground rules, creating an agenda, or using tools to encourage participation and engagement.
  • Identify areas where they lack knowledge or skills when it comes to virtual meetings, and research and find resources (such as tutorials, webinars, or training programs) to improve them.

 

Remote work is not a one-size-fits-all solution, but it can be a powerful tool for creating more diverse and inclusive workplaces.
