We are looking into allowing expanded options for conversations (live free meetings) with friends on this support site. However, we need more friends who are comfortable with the various meeting sites and their apps. We not only are looking for hosts in the range of time zones of the Earth that we have friends scattered in but also people who are skilled in explaining how to get on to the meetings and use of the features to the friends on here are non-techies.
The idea is to allow live… read more
I’d be able to zoom from a tablet or my phone since gave done it before - as long as it’s not more than an hour…
You actually do not have any Zoom download in order to join a meeting or even have an account on Zoom. Only the host needs that. Anyone else can just join the meeting as a guest. However, it is fine to join via an account already in existence on Zoom.
And I believe that you just join as a guest on Skype. However, Brian Martin or someone else with more available knowledge can better answer that. And those with experience with the other meeting options can provide more details about them.
Ok. I am going to have several ZOOM meetings to get things going for those of you who are interested and able to attend now. There will be other meetings to come that will be on other options besides ZOOM that others who are more familiar will run, or I will research and practice so that I can host them. And then we will get into a specific subject for each meeting. And post the video of it and thus provide those who could not attend the meeting (or are not comfortable talking in a meeting) to provide your input into the conversation with a posting on here.
The first one that I will do is at 9 pm EST on Friday February 4th.
The second one that I will do will be at 11 pm EST (or some other time that is best for friends in Hawaii) on Saturday February 5th.
When Carolyn is ready and tells me what time is best, I will do one with Skype at a time that is best for my friends in Australia/New Zealand that works best for their time zone. And if no one is able or willing to attend, then it will be one between Carolyn and I.
Now, how about some suggestions from others who are willing to host other meetings on any of the meeting options that you are most comfortable with (ZOOM, Skype, Webex, Google Meet, etc.).
Let me know if you are interested for Friday or Saturday. I will post the link to the meeting and the meeting # and password. The link should get you right there, but if it doesn't, then it is easy enough to get in by putting in the ZOOM meeting # and password --because the link will bring you to the place to join a meeting by filling in those details. And I will provide the rest of the details that you need to know on Friday and Saturday.
I have done Zoom meetings for both my exercise class and lots of things related to my church, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis.
I have both of the Google meeting and Zoom. I use the Google meeting to meet up with my computer teacher every Wednesday and then I use Zoom to meet my therapist once a week
