  • Schedule a Zoom meeting at ucsb.zoom.com - use your UCSB NetID credentials.
    • <<options for the zoom meeting? Waiting room etc.?>>
  • Require Lab Users/Attendees use a desktop/laptop computer to join, not just phone. They will need to see details on the screen and possibly take notes.
  • Ensure you are connecting from a high-speed internet connection, eg. on-campus and wired (not Wifi). You will be streaming video to attendees, so this is important!.
    • The Video Training Workstation in the conference room is set up for this, with web cam.
  • Require all attendees to have video ON during the entire training.
    • This verifies that all participants are present and paying attention - local school/college teachers found this was necessary!
  • Use the Zoom > Participants > "Mute All" button
    • Let users know they can unmute themselves whenever needed, to ask questions. Just pause the video when someone asks.
  • Share your computer Screen:
    • Hide or Close all your other programs or apps open on your computer.
    • On the Zoom Toolbar, click the "Share Screen [↑] " button
    • Enable the "Optimize for Video Clip" and "Share Computer Sound" checkboxes
    • Select "Desktop 1"
      • This ensures users can see your mouse moving, instead of selecting only one window.
    • Click the "Share" button to start presenting your computer screen live.
  • In your regular web browser, load the pre-recorded video on the GauchoSpace/PanOpto website, using the Browse option on the left to find it in the NanoFab folder.
    • The same training video should also be available on the Tool's wiki page.
  • Maximize the window size, and play/pause as needed.
    • If users find the screen share to be too blurry to read, try to make the video larger:
      • Minimize the bottom-bar showing the video clips
      • Full-screen the video, eliminating the side-video (where appropriate).
  • You can use the [→ ←] button to switch which video is larger, or the [_] button to maximize only one video feed.
  • If appropriate, schedule short hands-on followup trainings for the fragile or sensitive parts of the process (eg. Wafer load/unload etc.).
