By now, we have all participated in numerous online conferences, working remotely. The data suggests that the number of virtual conferences and meetings have been steadily increasing since the pandemic forced the shutdown of thousands of businesses, schools, and retail operations. Remote working and long distance learning have prevailed across the world.
On April 9, 2020, Microsoft Teams reported that it observed a new daily record of 2.7 billion meeting minutes in one day, representing a 200% increase from 900 million on March 16, 2020. On the long distance learning side, Microsoft reported that there were 183,000 tenants in 175 nations using its Teams for Education. Zoom, too, saw a dramatic spike it its use. In April 2020, it reported that the platform had surpassed 300 million daily Zoom meeting participants, a 50% increase from its 200 million participants in March 2020, and far above the 10 million participants it recorded in December 2019. It’s safe to assume that virtual conferences, live streaming meetings and events, and long distance learning are all part of a new normal.
