What I Learned from Being on TV

Whether you are a Zoom, Skype or WebEx presenter or participant, what have you learned—during the course of enforced distance from your regular workplace—about these modalities?

Are you a natural host, the next Alex Trebek? Or are you the first to hit mute and black out the video? What effect does seeing yourself on a video screen have? Is there an optimum duration to any kind of video interaction? What changes have you made at home to better accommodate video participation? Do you ever get or give feedback, based on your involvement with video? Are there things you just can’t stand about a video chat? 

Send us your observations, in just a few sentences, and we will publish the ones that best capsulize your reactions. You can submit anonymously or include your name. Email the Record at rm26q@nih.gov or cg9s@nih.gov.
