Digital Small Groups
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are faced with establishing alternate methods of communicating, applying proper social distancing methods and prioritizing the safety of you and those around you. This creates a new dynamic in how we congregate. Thankfully, we live in an age where myriad technology platforms are available at our fingertips, allowing us to continue to connect and fellowship with one another.
Virtual Conferencing helps bridge the gap in environments where we’d otherwise meet face-to-face.
What is Virtual Conferencing?
Virtual conferencing allows people to come together remotely, regardless of where they are located. So long as you have an Internet connection, you can connect with anyone virtually both domestic and internationally. The most popular form of virtual conferencing is video conferencing, which provides the ability to make or receive video calls, join 1-on-1 or group meetings, or participate in hosted events.
Which Video Conference Solution Should I Use?
There exists a plethora of virtual conference options, but the 2 popular free solutions we recommend are Zoom and Google Hangouts
As each of us adjusts to this “new normal,” it is incumbent that we continue to encourage and uplift one another, especially during these challenging times.
