We are looking for volunteers to act as Zoom classroom moderators. You do not necessarily need Zoom experience as we can show you what to do, but mostly keep an eye on the time for the instructors, monitor the chat for questions, etc.
If you are interested and willing to help, please contact Lady Genevieve O’Connor, AEcademy Provost and coordinator for the virtual AEcademy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As Zoom has become much better in the past year with security and reporting options, we are changing our no posting rule for Zoom passwords.
You will be allowed to post passwords for Zoom on public social media and website one (1) week before an online activity, provided that the activity’s zoomerator(s) & host(s) actively watch for inappropriate/harmful activity from (unknown/unfamiliar) participants and report as necessary.
We hope that this will be a most helpful step going forward!
Greetings Æthelmearc, We have another great ÆLive show lined up for this Saturday, June 27 at 7pm. As always, the show will feature entertainment, games, trivia, interviews, comedy, and news from around the Kingdom! When the show is over, remember to stick around for Æthelchat!!!
This episode we’ll be celebrating “favorite things.” What does that mean? How about: wear your favorite garb/accessories to watch the show, use your favorite mug with your choice beverage, send a happy message to a beloved pal or share a favorite story – it doesn’t have to be ALL the things. As we have done before we will assemble a little slide show featuring pictures that you submit, so please send your pictures featuring your favorite things by email to email@example.com before the episode starts and they might be featured!
See you Saturday!

Æthelmearc Teens and Tweens, you are cordially invited to participate in your own Æ Teen Tween Zoom Chat this Friday June 12th at 7 P.M. There will be activities planned. Chat will be moderated by Mistress Cordelia, the Kingdom Youth Minister, aka Colleen Charleton Martino, and Duchess Ilish O’Donovan. Parents, if your child is interested in joining in the chat please contact Mistress Cordelia in advance at Aechancellorminor1@gmail.com .
From the Kingdom Webminister, Baroness Amalie, regarding Zoom, the conferencing service used by the Kingdom and its people for online gatherings, meetings, AE Live, and similar:
Please note that there is a Zoom client update (to Zoom 5.0) that *must* be done by May 30th on any laptop/desktop. (Presumably, phones/tablets will ask you to update or do an auto-update depending on your settings.)
If you do not update your client, from what I understand, you will have an interruption in using Zoom. Zoom will attempt to update automatically after the 30th. If it does not update, or you do not want to update, you will be forced to use the browser method of using Zoom.
This update will fix many outstanding security flaws from older client versions and there will be new security features rolled out with this update.
Please, in order to not have to Zoom update at the time of your meeting or the next AELive, go to http://zoom.us and click the orange update now button and update your zoom client. (Direct link to the download page is https://zoom.us/download)
