Remote Conferencing

There are three main platforms that are available to staff and teachers to conference remotely with parents and staff. Below are instructions on how to set up an account and get started using these systems. All three systems have the capability to do video conferencing or presentations where participants can connect using any device connected to the internet (computers, Chromebooks, phones, etc) or by calling in using a phone number and conference code. The three programs are below in order of the recommended system to use and a printable quick start guide is at the bottom of the page.

1. Zoom meeting - Zoom meeting is free to sign up with a basic version allowing up to 100 users but you are limited to 40 minutes for your conference. They are currently offering an upgrade for K-12 schools affected by the COVID-19 so after signing up, you can fill out the form to request the upgrade.

2. Google Hangouts
Google Hangouts/Meet is set up for all staff to create and invite participants to meetings using their @oxps.org email. This works well to invite staff and students in oxps.org as they already have a Google account setup.

3. GoToMeeting - This company is offering a free 14-day trial. You can sign up at  https://www.gotomeeting.com/
