Integrating Gnowbe into your Zoom Call

  2. When prompted with a popup, select a window or application that has Gnowbe Web on.
  3. Select the Share button. You’re now sharing Gnowbe Web in your video call!

Technical steps to share both the Gnowbe Application and your desktop during your Zoom call

  1. When your video call first begins, be sure to share your screen.
  2. To share both your desktop and mobile screens, you may first connect your phone to your computer using your USB cable.
  3. Launch QuickTime Player and under “File” in the menu bar, select the “New Movie Recording” function.
  4. Next to the Record button, click on the down arrow, and click on your phone’s name. Your phone should be mirrored on your computer screen, in the exact shape of your phone screen.
  5. Launch the Gnowbe application using your phone, and go through the program during the Zoom Call.

While most Zoom Calls involve the use of sharing content on slides, this could actually be a deterrence to your engagement with your audience. Instead, you can use Gnowbe as an interactive platform that allows you to value-add to your audiences Zoom Call experience.

While you are able to share BOTH the Gnowbe Application and Gnowbe Web in your video calls, we highly recommend that you share Gnowbe Web on your video calls and get your users to use the application individually for live polls or other interactions. The former might be an overload for your audience.

Group engagement can also be heightened with Gnowbe.

  • With an individual group board per program, audiences are able to post their queries or questions on Gnowbe, allowing you (the curator), to answer questions in real-time or even after the Zoom Call has concluded. These questions will remain collated on the program’s group board, making it easily accessible either on the Gnowbe mobile application or Gnowbe Web and can always be referred to.
  • With the program having been gamified, audiences can also interact with polls and our Group Board feature which mimics Instagram! It’s fun, we promise!
  • Through the Message function, audiences can ask you questions or provide feedback privately. This may appeal to soft-spoken audiences, who may have valuable feedback to share with you about your program.

Any additional resources that need to be shared with your audience can also be shared with your audience using Gnowbe’s Resources goodie bag, where larger files can be stored and easily accessed by your audience. All you have to do is simply upload your files into the goodie bag and share the link within your program or even in your emails.

With Workbook, your audience can also print content – including their own answers, laid out in the program as a PDF file, allowing them to take notes while being engaged during the Zoom Call.

After your Zoom Call

Engaging your audience doesn’t stop once your Zoom Call ends. It’s an ever continuous process to ensure that your audience fully understands the information you shared and are able to apply it to their own lives.

Here on Gnowbe, you’re able to track your impact using Gnowbe’s comprehensive Analytics Dashboard. You’re able to take a look at user analytics using their qualitative and quantitative data, and take an overall look at how many users have signed up for your program.

As a curator, you’re also able to track your user’s individual completion rates and star ratings can be analyzed to track your program’s performance.

Gnowbe is free-for-all. You can create programs and share them with anyone at no charge. However, our back-end analytics can only be accessed with a purchased plan. Contact our friendly Gnowbeans and request for a demo today.
