Zoom is a tool available to all faculty, students, and staff at IU. With Zoom, you can collaborate and host class sessions online through high-quality video and audio, breakout rooms for group activities, the ability to record and download meetings, and more features to facilitate distance learning.
Get started with Zoom
Set up your Zoom account and practice using Zoom before you use it to host a class.
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.
