Because there will be so many people on these Zoom meetings, here are some best practices for making sure we are working together to create an efficient, effective, respectful, and ultimately enjoyable classroom!
- Mute yourself unless you are speaking. This will cut down on background noise and limit any distractions
- Be mindful of your surroundings when on camera. We want to make sure we avoid as much distraction as possible
- Please add a professional photo of yourself for your Zoom profile picture. This photo will be visible during class sessions
- Turn your camera off if you are leaving the meeting temporarily and use the away feedback icon
- Try to keep questions and comments brief. With a large classroom, there are many people to get through and many questions to move through. Try to limit remarks as much as possible
- Minimize repetition. If you are hearing repeat information, use the go faster icon.
- If the video or audio is choppy, try turning off your video and consider trying these Internet Connection Tips after the class or meeting.
Please always use reliable private or enterprise WIFI. If you are experiencing problems with your internet connection, here are some Internet Connection Tips
