Work From Home - Video Calling Guide

What is Video Calling

Video calling is just like a normal telephone call except you can see the person who is calling you, on you computer, tablet or phone. The great advantage of this is that you can continue to hold your team meetings even if some or all of your staff are located somewhere else. Yes; you could just arrange a normal phone conference call, but meetings are much more engaging if you can see the people your dealing with. You can also share your screen in the meeting to show a presentation or demonstrate a new application.

Video calls and conferencing have become the new norm for meetings since the majority of us have started working from home. Even when things return to some semblance of normality it is very likely that many of us will continue use of the technology and reduce the number of in-person meetings we have.
