How quickly our lives have changed amid the COVID-19 pandemic! We won’t count the ways in this post, but what hasn’t changed, and will not change, is the need to demonstrate good manners with those with whom we interact.
The social distancing and self-isolation practices that have been implemented to keep us safe in this battle have driven more of us to use videoconferencing technology. When meeting with co-workers, clients, teachers, classmates, telemedicine staff, etc. we want to use the time we have with them effectively so that our meetings are productive. No one appreciates time wasted with avoidable technical issues, distracting background noises, or unnecessary chatter – verbally or in the chat box.
The Videoconference Etiquette LiveBinder offers a few selected web articles offering practical advice for having a successful meeting — whether you are leading a videoconference or participating in one. This binder was created to be an easy read that you can share with whomever you think will find it useful.
Please feel free to edit it – add tabs with text, web pages or videos that you would like to share with others. To do this, create a free account with LiveBinders. At the top of the Videoconference Etiquette binder there will be an Options button. Click it and choose Copy. This will add a copy of the binder to your LiveBinders “shelf”. You can now edit the binder to make it your own.
If you have any questions while doing this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always happy to help.
Stay safe and productive!
