                          "Zoom fatigue" is real. Fortunately, there are video meeting tools expressly built to address technology overload and low energy among participants. In the last of our Digital Discovery Workshops for this season, here's a chance to experience virtual meeting environments designed for interaction, and explore how they differ from the generalist platforms that so many of us use.

                          Bundle & Save
