Most of the content was good old common sense but Jen did provide some new tips, at least to me. One was using the F1 & F2 keys to reduce the glare if you wear glasses. Jen is a good speaker and has an upbeat personality. I would recommend this course to anyone who participates in Video calls especially from home.

Very informative course on the do's and don'ts when on a video meeting. I've found the information to be extremely useful and will incorporate not just for work, but for doctor appointments, etc. Also, the tips were great!

Great course - this course if very useful not only for meetings, but interviewing as well. A lot of this is self-explanatory, however if you have to be told to wear pants, you might just need a different job.

Thank you this was very helpful! Especially, not taking notes to the computer was something I did not care. The set-up really should be a consideration point.
