Virtual Events - Zoom and ASU Resources

Entering into our new digital world hasn’t been easy but here at ASU, we have an incredible amount of support staff to lean on.  We have compiled resources in 5 areas below to begin the journey into virtual meetings and events as well as some of the ways UTO can assist us as event professionals. 

1. Last week Seth Levine from UTO presented a webinar dedicated to ASU Virtual Event Resources where he shared his most effective tips, resources, platform comparisons, and answered your questions.

2. This training is an excellent resource to master basic and intermediate Zoom skills. If you are new to Zoom, it is recommended you watch all the sections. However, if you are more familiar with the system Sections 2 and 4 can equip you with tools to manage virtual meetings and events (including polls, breakout rooms, and taking control of a participant’s screen).
