What does Zoom Rooms do well? Zoom is a great alternative to Skype. Many will believe otherwise but as an online teacher, I love everything Zoom offers. Let's get down the list! first and foremost is the capability to maintain connection at lower bandwidth. Awesome feature. secondly, if offers quick sharing features from your screen to other apps and its interactive white board. it is easy to install and can work smoothly between the mobile version and the PC version. I have used it for my online classes for a long time and I am not getting back to Skype.
What does Zoom Rooms not do well? The only thing that personally bothers me are the limitations of the free version for group activities. The cap for more than 2 people conversation is 40 minutes and I have to pay way more than what I can earn given the fact that my income is not in dollars.
What do you wish you had known about Zoom Rooms before using? I did a course in online teaching and I almost knew pretty much about all the features of Zoom. I'd say I wish Id known it existed earlier :)
Other than that, I wish I knew its servers are shared with services that are blocked or limited in Middle East and East Asia. Some of my contacts had to reach me through VPN connections.
Have you used a competitor to Zoom Rooms? If so, how does it compare? I have used Skype, Adobe connect and Google hangouts to be able to teach online classes but none of those apps offered services that I needed for an ultimate classroom experience such as connection speed, whiteboard and versatile sharing features.
