great graphics
Burt Alper
42:04
Would be great if we could see you initiating these features
akluger
42:14
agreed
Andrea Taylor
42:42
Zoom hides its host functions when sharing the screen.
akluger
43:11
when we host, we will find it on the bottom yes?
Andrea Taylor
43:17
In the Zoom webinar tomorrow at 11 AM, I’ll talk you through doing some of this type of annotation.
Andrea Taylor
43:48
When you share your screen, you will see apps that are open, your desktop and an option called whiteboard.
gabriel weintraub
44:05
Will you share slides after?
Andrea Taylor
44:20
As a host, you’ll also see an item in your toolbar called “annotate” which you can do over a slide deck.
Andrea Taylor
44:42
So whiteboard is one option, then sharing your slide deck or screen and annotating over them is a second option.
matt abrahams
45:03
Gabriel, Andrea will share many resource materials to help.
Andrea Taylor
46:06
Send me your questions!
Christianb
46:46
I’m interested in learning how to pin multiple participants to be the focus for the whole class
gabriel weintraub
47:31
Does co-host have same privileges as host?
Andrea Taylor
48:01
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.
Andrea Taylor
49:12
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.
Christianb
49:57
@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?
Andrea Taylor
50:09
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.
Burt Alper
50:52
Christian — if you hover your mouse over the image you want to pin, that option pops up
Andrea Taylor
51:18
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
Debra Schifrin
51:19
What is the difference between Pin and Spotlight?
Christianb
51:38
Maybe I mean spotlight. I’m not sure how to pin multiple people
Andrea Taylor
53:09
I’m not seeing away to spotlight more than one person.
Christianb
53:18
That’s unfortunate
matt abrahams
58:28
Tea cup… hiccup
hugh keelan
58:59
question: why is zoom defaulting to showing Kristin's screen even when Matt is talking
Debra Schifrin
01:00:21
How to balance how far away to stand front the screen so students can see your face still?
Andrea Taylor
01:00:48
@hugh did it get fixed?
hugh keelan
01:01:12
@andrea yes fixed now. will you share the setting
Andrea Taylor
01:01:57
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.
Andrea Taylor
01:02:11
Until you pointed it out.
richard abramson
01:03:32
should we let students join before host?
Andrea Taylor
01:03:36
@Debra, let’s ask Kristin and Matt at the end about their ideas.
hugh keelan
01:04:02
not familiar with spotlight, can you share more at the appropriate time before the call ends
Burt Alper
01:04:16
can we assume that students will be on computers/laptops, or do we have to optimize for mobile devices too?
Andrea Taylor
01:05:15
@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).
Andrea Taylor
01:05:50
We’re recommending that student be on laptops or in the least a tablet. Smaller mobile devices are not recommended for more robust learning.
Andrea Taylor
01:07:01
@Burt we’ve been talking with student facing groups about making these types of recommmendations.
gabriel weintraub
01:07:25
Do you recommend share slides before hand?
gabriel weintraub
01:07:36
Post on canvas before class ?
Burt Alper
01:10:35
Does “we” work as well as “you”?
Andrea Taylor
01:10:39
@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. :-)
gabriel weintraub
01:10:57
ok, thanks
Debra Schifrin
01:14:12
Looking at chat takes your attention off the speaker. What are best practices around that?
hugh keelan
01:17:24
Think-Pair-Share … pairing via chat means opening up the chat for sutdents to chat behind the scenes, yes? What's the alternative
bill guttentag
01:18:16
How do we give our TAs equal control of the zoom
Andrea Taylor
01:18:36
@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.
Debra Schifrin
01:19:21
If students are clearly on their phone or breaking some other norm… would a good way to handle it to be through chat?
Andrea Taylor
01:19:57
TAs can be co hosts to your meeting. They can’t run breakout rooms but they have other permissions like muting participants.
Andrea Taylor
01:20:24
You or a TA can send a private chat to a student.
bill guttentag
01:20:35
thank yoy
bill guttentag
01:21:22
and how do we make the TAs the co-hosts
matt abrahams

Andrea Taylor
01:23:13
@ 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”
gabriel weintraub
01:28:05
can we ask questions from break out rooms ?
hugh keelan
01:29:36
I have to leave and join another call, thank you v much
Christianb
01:30:47
I was interested in having the class be able to look at two people interacting
Christianb
01:32:03
Where can I learn more about that?
matt abrahams
01:32:50
Gallery view stuff is in settings.
Debra Schifrin
01:33:14
@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.
bill guttentag
01:33:24
many thanks
akluger
01:33:43
This was so awesome! Every instructor AND student should see this. You are both rockstars!
