Here is what to expect during a Zoom class
- Once class begins, make sure that your webcam is on to engage with the instructor and your classmates. Please add a professional photo of yourself for your Zoom profile picture. This photo will be visible during class sessions
- Polling questions may be taken during class, students attending class through the Zoom smartphone app may not be able to participate in polling questions
- Your microphone will be automatically muted when you join a class
- When your instructor asks a question, use the nonverbal icons to answer. In the "Participants" window you may access "raise hand," "yes/no" and thumbs up/down (available after clicking the "more" button) Please see the illustrations below:
Video breakout rooms where you will be placed with a subset of your classmates may be assigned randomly or pre-defined by your instructor based on group assignments. Note: Preassigned break out rooms will not work if students enter a class late. If this is the case, the professor must leave the room and come back and reassign the breakout rooms. Please be considerate and join your class on time.
- When screensharing occurs, you may encounter a delay in the video
- Chat during class should be used for lecture topics or requesting help
- TA support will help students that post questions in the Chat window and answer content questions after class, help monitor nonverbal feedback (ie. "raise hands") and keep the class muted to minimize distractions
