Tools Used For Virtual Instruction

The Scrum Master workshop will be virtually led through Zoom and will utilize a simple Excel file for collaboration exercises. Our experiences over the past few months of remote training has taught us that introducing a new online collaboration tool can take away from the Scrum learning experience. For this reason we use google sheets for our collaborative exercises.
