Pro tips: 

  • Check your microphone and video work before going live to minimise any sound issues that may occur. Doing a practice run may help with efficiency and iron out any problems before going live.
  • Close all other tabs apart from Mentimeter and Zoom to improve loading speed.
  • You can also chat with other participants on Zoom by clicking the ‘chat’ button in the bottom toolbar whilst in the meeting or virtual classroom.
