Online Group Lessons
Megan F., Nebraska
Has anyone successfully taught shared lessons in an online setting? My husband suggested Google Hangouts.

I’m using Zoom. You can log yourself in with two devices so you can have a face to face view as well as a keyboard view.
I think it takes a little education for the students to get familiar with the different views and how to set up their device, etc. but it’s worked well so far.

Thus far, I have only used it personally in groups of 2-3 in combination with live class (as an alternative to make-ups). It works well. I’m a member of another Facebook community/group that features live masterclasses monthly, and the host uses Zoom very successfully in combination with a secondary host and then live-streams the feed to around 50-100 members (FB LIVE). He’s spoken a few times about using various different platforms and still thinks Zoom is just about the most stable and intuitive and affordable one on the market.

Yes, I use Zoom 90% of the time. I have groups and privates over the years online and they are their own learning curve. In some ways they are more focused than in Studio. You can have a passel of students all come online from different places. Had three states represented once when 2 people of three were out of town and we met online! They thought that was cool
