      Gallery Teachers has been running ELT (English Language Teaching) workshops and events in many countries around the world. More recently, we have shifted our focus to initial online training and CPD workshops. We are working with the best minds from the ELT industry, to bring highly valuable training and knowledge to our members.

      The Gallery Teachers Masterclass Series aims to produce high-quality online workshops and live sessions that will not only benefit the TEFL community but also all the TEFL teachers out there.

      RingCentral basically looks the same as Zoom. It’s very user friendly. =D

      This was very useful, thanks!

      Just one question: How do I access the “pre-recorded” session?

      Best,

      Gabriel

        Hello Gabriel, for this workshop, the pre-recorded session is the 5-minute video of how to use RingCentral Meeting. The rest of the information will be delivered live at 2pm during the live session.

      Great! Thanks. Do we need a special password to join the meeting at 2pm today?

        Hello Sheila, you do not need a password to join today’s meeting. Just need to enter the Meeting ID, and you will then be admitted to the meeting.

      Great! Thank you! My question is: can a co-host assign participants to the breakout rooms and move them from one room to another?

      Hi Janice. I don’t think I ever received the meeting ID. Can you send it to me or provide it here?

      Hello Janice, unfortunately I missed the first 30 minutes of the meeting today due to problems with my Safari browser not being able to support RingCentral. Can you send me a link to today’s recording?

        Hello Sheila, not to worry. Our production team is working on the post-editing. It will become available on the workshop by Wednesday. In the meantime, I have emailed you a link to the original recording so you can have a look before our call tomorrow. Speak soon! =D

      Thanks so much for the webinar today. It was really helpful and nice to meet everyone (Hi again everyone!)

      I had a few more questions, but didn’t want to hog the soundwaves, so here they are:

      1. Will we get the chance to attend/view each other’s workshops?
      2. Do we know how big our groups of trainees will be?
      3. You mentioned a light for the laptop camera. It looked nice! Can you remember what it’s called?
      4. Are we going to be doing just the one workshop?

      Thanks again and looking forward to moving forward with this!

        Hello Gabriel, we are very glad that you found the session to be useful.

        To answer your questions,
        1. Will we get the chance to attend/view each other’s workshops?
        > Yes, with your PRO membership (which will be set up for you as GT Trainer) you will be able to view and join all the workshops that will be available on our website. The first live session will be on Tuesday 9 Feb 2021. My colleague will assign the PRO membership to each GT trainer this week.

        2. Do we know how big our groups of trainees will be?
        > For this project, we are working in batches of 10. We are inviting each trainer to join the Gallery Teachers group for ELT trainers where you will be able to communicate with other trainers under this project.

        3. You mentioned a light for the laptop camera. It looked nice! Can you remember what it’s called?
        > Here if the link to amazon:
        Diyife Ring Light, [Newest Version] Rechargeable Selfie Ring Light, 3-Level Brightness Adjustment Clip-On 36 Highlight LED for Webcast and Applying Make Up for Any Cellphone Smartphone

        4. Are we going to be doing just the one workshop?
        > There will be opportunities to do more than one workshop. At the moment, we are scheduling the first round of the workshop. As soon as the first round of all settled, we will be moving on to the next round.

        Hope it helps =D

          Hello,
          Thanks it is very helpful.
          My question is: Can I use the white board to explain or write some points while the workshop is going on?

          Hello, with RingCentral meeting, you can select the whiteboard to share on the screen. If you want to write or draw on the slide, you can actually use the “Annotate” function (pen icon) from the Share menu bar.

          Hope it helps!

      I’d also recommend to try out CANVA when preparing your presentation slide. A quick and easy way to create your slides. CANVA is one of our favorite graphic design tools for non-designers. The slides just look amazing and are super easy to use. The free account should have enough templates for you to play around with for your presentation.
