Zoom: Teaching and Meeting Online
Check out the videos below and the slide decks on using Zoom and its interactive tools for student engagement.
On September 27, 2020 Zoom will require that all meetings have a Passcode or a Waiting Room enabled.
- For meetings that do not have either a Passcode or Waiting Room enabled by September 27th, Zoom will enable a Waiting Room for you
- You can customize the Waiting Room experience with an approved list of domains that can bypass the Waiting Room and directly join the meeting
- “Passwords” will be renamed “Passcodes” to better align with its role of allowing people in a meeting

Zoom can be used to host online class sessions, to create pre-recorded lectures and for virtual office hours.
