What is there besides Zoom and Teams? Exploring video conferencing with Mia Aghajari

Video conferencing has made itself indispensable. Many of us, wanting to make working from home a permanent condition, are trying to find secure virtual classrooms with the best teaching platform for our online classes.


In this workshop, we will generate a shortlist of video conference services and test each service’s prominent features in small groups from different perspectives. Choosing the best virtual learning solution and identifying the right virtual classroom software depends vastly on everybody’s individual needs. Therefore, we will have to consider the students we are teaching and the level of collaboration we require in our sessions, before exploring the tools’ features during a trial.


Sharing and discussing our findings with a focus group of our peers to record the tools’ user-friendliness and intuitiveness will make certain that we each find a good match that facilitates a high degree of user engagement.



Mia Aghajari, Frankfurt am Main, is a freelance ELT professional, working in testing and teacher training. She has developed concepts and content for digital tests and has been focusing on combining testing and exam preparation with learning technologies while working on various digital projects.
