Zoom User’s Guide

During Zoom Class 

  • Please keep your microphone muted except when it is your turn to talk. 
  • For discussions, enable your video camera and use the ‘Gallery View’ so that everyone can see each other. 
  • Use the buttons underneath the participant window to raise your hand, agree or disagree, provide feedback on the pace of the lecture/discussion, or indicate if you have had to step away for a short break. 
  • Share your screen when it is your turn to share your presentation or content with the class. 
  • Please refrain from any side conversations during the Zoom class. 
  • Do not talk over or interrupt other students or the instructor. Use the ‘raise your hand’ icon. 
  • Click on the ‘chat’ button to see and participate in the ongoing chat discussion. 

Camera Use 

  • Position your webcam at eye level or higher. Experiment for best angles. 
  • Make eye contact. Try to look at your webcam as often as possible. 
  • Use the gestures and mannerisms that you would typically use in person. 
  • Please treat this as you would our in-person class in terms of dress and appearance.  Your camera should not reveal anything potentially offensive.
