Avoid Zoom Gloom: Effective Engagement Techniques for GSB online classes - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Would be great if we could see you initiating these features
Zoom hides its host functions when sharing the screen.
when we host, we will find it on the bottom yes?
In the Zoom webinar tomorrow at 11 AM, I’ll talk you through doing some of this type of annotation.
When you share your screen, you will see apps that are open, your desktop and an option called whiteboard.
Will you share slides after?
As a host, you’ll also see an item in your toolbar called “annotate” which you can do over a slide deck.
So whiteboard is one option, then sharing your slide deck or screen and annotating over them is a second option.
Gabriel, Andrea will share many resource materials to help.
Send me your questions!
I’m interested in learning how to pin multiple participants to be the focus for the whole class
Does co-host have same privileges as host?
Cristian, one option you can do is to have everyone but your presenters turn off their cameras this will prioritize those with cameras on in the feed.
Co-hosts have most of the same privileges. The one thing they cannot do is set up the breakout rooms and monitor those. That can only be initiated from the meeting host. You can pass off host privileges to someone else in your class such as a co-teacher or a trusty TA. They can pass it back to you too.
@Andrea, isn’t there a pinning feature that will make their boxes larger than the Brady bunch view and that will keep them in focus even when they are not speaking?
Polls are set up beforehand. Once you set up your meeting, find it in your account in Stanford.zoom.us and you’ll see the poll option at the bottom of the screen.
Christian — if you hover your mouse over the image you want to pin, that option pops up
Ahh, @cristian, here’s a help doc. I’m learning new things everyday! https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115000505583-Pin-or-Spotlight-Video
What is the difference between Pin and Spotlight?
Maybe I mean spotlight. I’m not sure how to pin multiple people
I’m not seeing away to spotlight more than one person.
Tea cup… hiccup
question: why is zoom defaulting to showing Kristin's screen even when Matt is talking
How to balance how far away to stand front the screen so students can see your face still?
@hugh did it get fixed?
@andrea yes fixed now. will you share the setting
I think I hit spotlight and since I’m a cohost that pushed it out to all of you. I didn’t turn that off.
Until you pointed it out.
should we let students join before host?
@Debra, let’s ask Kristin and Matt at the end about their ideas.
not familiar with spotlight, can you share more at the appropriate time before the call ends
can we assume that students will be on computers/laptops, or do we have to optimize for mobile devices too?
@Richard. Right now my team is recommending having it set for not allow join before host. This will help with two things. If your meeting is set for auto record, it won’t record the session before you join and start the class. The second, is it keeps people from jumping in early and playing around with your features like screen sharing (there’s been some concern about Zoom bombing).
We’re recommending that student be on laptops or in the least a tablet. Smaller mobile devices are not recommended for more robust learning.
@Burt we’ve been talking with student facing groups about making these types of recommmendations.
Do you recommend share slides before hand?
Post on canvas before class ?
Does “we” work as well as “you”?
@Gabriel, I think this depends on your workflow. Some faculty do post ahead, and possibly have done this when they’ve led in-person lectures. Others post after the lecture. Depends if you want them to have a preview or if you’re afraid of giving away your punchlines. :-)
Looking at chat takes your attention off the speaker. What are best practices around that?
Think-Pair-Share … pairing via chat means opening up the chat for sutdents to chat behind the scenes, yes? What's the alternative
How do we give our TAs equal control of the zoom
@debra, I’ve found it being important to plan for points in a class where I focus the students on chat at strategic points. If they know you are at space where you plan to collect and respond to comments, and then let them know you are focusing on another part of your activity where questions aren’t being monitored (or explicitly state to put questions and chat on hold). Being explicit about your expectations and plan can go a long way.
If students are clearly on their phone or breaking some other norm… would a good way to handle it to be through chat?
TAs can be co hosts to your meeting. They can’t run breakout rooms but they have other permissions like muting participants.
You or a TA can send a private chat to a student.
and how do we make the TAs the co-hosts
@ bill there are two ways. When creating the meeting they can be made as an alternative host. During the meeting, you would find that person in the participants list, hover your mouse over their name and then choose “make co-host”
can we ask questions from break out rooms ?
I have to leave and join another call, thank you v much
I was interested in having the class be able to look at two people interacting
Where can I learn more about that?
Gallery view stuff is in settings.
@Christian: I’ve found that you can turn off video for non-speakers - then only two are seen. Change settings to hide non-video participants.
This was so awesome! Every instructor AND student should see this. You are both rockstars!
