- When two or more students are at one computer presenting as a group in a Zoom meeting, multiple students can be on the mic (6-7 are usually fine) and one can share the presentation screen with the class. The others can talk and the presenter can advance the slides
- Have the host make presenters co-hosts during their presentation so that they may control the participant window and can handle raised hands and unmute other students to take questions
The Annotate Feature
UT has changed the default settings for all of our UT Zoom accounts to prevent individuals not affiliated with the university from interrupting meetings by using features like Annotate. However, Annotate can be re-enabled for your use. To retrieve the Annotate button:
- Sign in to Zoom at utexas.zoom.us
- Click on the Settings tab on the left side of the screen
- About halfway down the page (it’s a long page) you will see the Annotation setting. Click the button to turn it on.
- The next time you share your screen in a meeting you should see the Annotate button.
NOTE: You will want to “Disable participant annotation” at the beginning of each call to prevent others from drawing or writing on your screen. You can do this by:
- Click the “More” button on the control bar
- Select “Disable participants annotation”
