TECH TIP 6 – Chat vs. Share Screen in Zoom

The difference between CHAT and SHARE SCREEN:

CHAT SCREEN

Hyperlinked documents are easily shared in CHAT for all to see.  

Doris O. Wong Associates, Inc., hyperlinks documents upon request.

You can also share files from your computer or file sharing programs like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Box.com.

Anyone can share a link to CHAT.

Participants click on the link to see the document.  CHAT protocol:  Have the witness identify what they’re seeing before you mark the document as an exhibit.

Participants will lose the video when viewing the document.  Audio stays on.  To get back to Zoom, close out of the document or can click on the Zoom Tab to rejoin the meeting.  If you are using an iPad, can click on the Home button and rejoin Zoom.

SCREEN SHARE

One person shares a document for all to see at the same time.

The document takes up the Zoom screen.

            Options:  Instead of full screen, you can keep participants off to the side.

The host can grant permission to all participants if you would like to mark up the document.

Documents can be annotated with text, arrows, lines, etc.

Annotated documents can be saved as an exhibit.
