Zoom meetings have replaced face to face meetings at work, lessons in classrooms and university lectures for many people during the coronavirus pandemic.
While for some, like school kids and teachers, restrictions have eased allowing them to return to normality, for others the days of spending their time in front of a screen will continue.
But could it mean some places of work and education change permanently?
Local human resources firm, Armidale's Pinnacle People Solutions, moved to online meetings ahead of the restrictions in March.
Its CEO, Bronwyn Person, has been conducting Facebook Live sessions each workday morning with COVID-19 updates and specialist HR advice.
Before coronavirus, Bronwyn had travelled around the region, meeting with businesses that use their services for human resources.
Now a lot more of those meetings are happening online.
"It's predominantly Zoom, or Skype or Facetime. So the face-to-face meetings that we were having are now by and large done via video link," Bronwyn said.
It's a lot of screentime, she said.
As well as meeting clients, and team meetings online each working day, they have also got their staff together online for lunch once a week.
Bron has delivered lunch to the homes of employees in Armidale, who then jump online together over lunch.
"Everybody puts a lunch order in and I go around and pick up the lunch orders and distribute them to everybody who's in town," Bron said.
They also have a staff member in Sydney and another in Melbourne, who log on, with the company also paying for their lunch.
"It's a bit of fun, we chew the fat with each other about life in general. It's really nice," she said.
In higher education it's a similar story. University of New England science lecturer Mary McMillan has, like her academic colleagues, delivered lectures online.
"I think we've all been forced to think about how we teach and how we engage with students," Dr McMillan said.
"In some ways it's been good to get out of the rutt of thinking this is how we teach and this is how things have to be done. When you have something like this it forces you to actually think about the why and how you're teaching.
"I've still been delivering lectures to my students every week, we just jump on Zoom now, and those that are available at that time can have a live lecture.
"A lot of our online students are loving that, because they've never had the live lectures before," she said.
As restrictions start to lift, Bronwyn said she has started to meet some of their clients face-to-face again in their Armidale office, but she could see some of the changes would be here to stay.
"I really do think that we are going to see some fundamental shifts in the breadth and depth of how work is done. I don't think that employment will go back to what it was pre-covid. I think we'll see a more flexible approach.
"We're keeping a very close watch on that."
She said they may soon find themselves advising businesses on handling requests from staff members who want to work from home more often.
"There's some really interesting and really positive shifts that we're starting to see come out of this. We're trying to stay half a step ahead of that."
