Zoom's Annotation Feature for Engagement (Tips to use) :

Zoom Annotate

Tip 1 : Take a couple of minutes to make sure everyone knows how to annotate. Super Important! Put instructions in the chat box. Give them a blank slide to practice on.

Tip 2 : Start with a fun annotation activity (e.g., use a map and find out where people are in the world).

Tip 3 : Use stamps so that people can answer questions (like multiple choice questions). But make it more fun by having nice visuals for people to stamp on. To see an example, check minute 42:32 of this webinar on building trust.


Tip 4 : Have people type words on the page. To see an example, check minute 10:50 of this webinar.
