Easy! We send you an email which will contain a link to the training. YOU can choose: Zoom (which many people have experienced during the COVID pandemic) or TeamViewer.
When you click on this link a browser window will open (it could be Internet Explorer or Safafi - depending on the computer you have - MAC or PC).
There is nothing to install and so it should all run smoothly and should not require you to bother your IT team.
OR - if you have ZOOM already installed:
You will be able to see the trainer's computer screen and you will be able to hear the trainer (through your headset or speakers).
The trainer will then lead you through the training by demonstrating and explaining the Excel feature and you will be able to practise using your own laptop/computer.
But that means you need to be able to see the trainer's screen and yours at the same time. Therefore you need to follow the set up instructions set out below BEFORE the training starts. Many businesses/companies have a board/meeting room with a projector/TV already. And many employees now have dual monitors so maybe you will not have to worry about this at all!
Almost every laptop has the ability to add a secondary monitor. It will either be a RGB connection (computer monitor or TV) or an HDMI connection (TV):
Simply plug in the extra monitor or TV - you will need the correct cable to do this. Depending on the setting of you computer you may need to 'extend' the desktop onto the second monitor.
Right click on your desktop and select 'Screen Resolution' and then make the following changes:
Now that you have 2 screens it is only a matter of experimenting. You can drag a document (e.g. a Word Document) onto the other monitor and have another document (e.g. an Excel spreadsheet) open on the original laptop's screen. Eventually, you will be looking at the Trainer's Laptop on one monitor and your own Excel document on your laptop screen.
If it all gets too much, ask a colleague or your IT staff to assist. It really is pretty easy to set up.
Then plug in your headset (headphones and microphone) into the USB or RCA port - you can't go wrong the leads will only fit into the correct port.
