Teaching and facilitating learning on Zoom

Video on Zoom

Distance learning can feel impersonal, unfamiliar, or even awkward for some students. Using video strategically can help keep students engaged.

How to use Breakout Rooms

With Zoom, you can move students into breakout rooms that allow them to work together or have discussions in small groups.

Features for class participation

Keeping students engaged and participating virtually can be supported through a variety of Zoom features. When using these features, be sure to plan the activity ahead of time so that you are not distracted during the class session.
