Well, as noted above we (cpc) have been having a weekly chat at a pub called 'The Zoom', (good choice of cheap beer, comfy seats and walking distance from home) and have even had a 'lecture' (more planned) which we've put on YouTube
, which has worked well (and there is an option to live stream also).
Zoom also works well for meetings (and you can record them to help with minutes etc).
Not really tried Teams, but it has its fans.

Excellent stuff Dave, well done.

Seems we are looking similar things, I will be in touch soon to discuss.

There must be other people who have the ability to present short lectures on their favorite subjects. What a great thing to do.

Just in case you are thinking of using music as part of your Zoom or Skype meeting, then beware of copyright laws.  It appears that the playing of music to persons by the direct transmission of sound such as in a dance hall requires one type of licence, see

where as the playing of music via Zoom or Skype and some other platforms requires a different licence, see

Yes...you have to be very careful. Even incidental music from a third party can fall foul of this.

Further to my reply regarding choosing your background on Zoom, I tried it on my Thursday night sesh with UCET with success. However you need to put up a green screen behind you and fortunately I had some green bed sheets that did the job great. I am the one centre top appearing to be relaxing in the sun at Lytham St. Annes in my bathing suit even though it was in the middle of the night!
