What Frances just suggested works - when I closed the poll window, it reopened when I clicked the poll button at the bottom of the Zoom window.

engagement tools = polls?
Alison Brauneis
30:15
@Joshua - yes and also using reactions for informal polling options

I recently attended a session where the setup were slides as part of an artificial background. This was incredibly effective (for example, the speaker was able to point at things on the slide) and felt much better than any other Zoom session I have seen in the last year. How can achieve that setup (or something reasonably close; slides as virtual background don't work for me). Here is an example of what it looked like (though I'm not sure what the speaker actually used) https://help.mmhmm.app/hc/en-us/articles/360050985073-Getting-started-with-mmhmm

+1 for Anne's question

Presumably, a person can record independently, e.g. separately from Zoom.

Does the order change only for me or for everyone else?

@Anne, unfortunately the GSB does not currently have a tool similar to mmhmm (or mmhmm) that does what you would like. We recommend using slides as the virtual background if your hardware supports it. Make sure your Zoom app is updated and that may give you more options that were previously unavailable

Is that host view only, or will cohosts also be able to force follow host's video order?
Alison Brauneis
39:04
@chanchal - the host has the ability to share their gallery order with everyone in the call
Chanchal Bhoorani
39:40
Thanks, Alison!
Alison Brauneis

@Juli - only the host can push out the order (not the co-host), although everyone can re-order the thumbnails on their own Zoom instance.
Austin Ward
41:06
FYI, when students “raise hand,” it seems the participant tab preserves the correct order while the gallery view does not necessarily do that. Important to watch out for if you care about first-come-first-serve when taking comments

@ Diane - Thanks. When people use it, does it work best if one blocks out a part of the slides (essentially just using part of the slide) or do you have some other best practices for using slides as a virtual background?
Alison Brauneis
41:57
@Peter - When you mention recording outside of Zoom, are you thinking about yourself recording your class session(s) outside of Zoom or about your students capturing the class sessions?
Peter Francis
42:22
Students capturing.
abeyer
42:56
@ Diane - also: is there a service that you can recommend, even if I have to pay for it myself? For example, mmhmm is still in beta for Windows but for Macs it's less than $10/month

@Jeff here is the resource for using slides as virtual background in Zoom (not an external software) https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360046912351-Sharing-slides-as-a-Virtual-Background?mobile_site=true

Is there a function to clear all raised hands/reactions?
diane lee (she/her)
49:56
@Joshua, yes the host and co-hosts can do this from the participant window
joshua hurwitz
51:34
CAs often feel like we're red circles with Xes
diane lee (she/her)
52:20
@Anne let us follow up with you separately after the call to see how we can support you for alternatives to the slides as zoom background
diane lee (she/her)
52:36
@Joshua LOL
Peter Francis
52:58
+1 on Anne's question. I see the information in Zoom and that will help when I have a chance to fully read it.
joshua hurwitz
54:30
any particular whiteboard apps recommended?
abeyer
56:15
Do you have some recommendations on how to arrange things so that I can see my slides and still look directly at the camera? (I'm just noticing that I can tell right now that Andrea is looking at her slides and it's quite noticeable).
diane lee (she/her)
59:09
@Joshua whiteboard in Zoom is great and doesn’t require additional setup. Jamboard is also a great option if you have less than 50 simultaneous users (and part of our Stanford Google Suite)
Alison Brauneis

@anne - We have a short segment from a prior webinar, Leading Effective Discussions, where Kate Casey talks about how she sets up her home office to increase engagement and eye contact. You may find it useful to see: https://tlhub.stanford.edu/upcoming-events/august-26-facilitating-effective-discussions-workshop/. She tries to place her camera in the middle of her two screens to maintain eye contact. In addition, we can host a Zoom teaching practice session with you to talk about your specific set up. https://tlhub.stanford.edu/upcoming-events/march-15-26-zoom-teaching-practice-sessions-for-fully-online-courses/?occurrence=2021-03-15

@diane thanks

@ Alison I'm planning to use one of the studios
Frances Tomacruz (she/her)
01:07:13
@Anne the cameras in our studios are in a fixed position, as you know, but you can share the slides on one of the monitors right next to it so it’s not too far to look.
diane lee (she/her)

@Peter students would not be able to record your session in Zoom unless you explicitly gave them permission to do so. However, there is nothing we can do to technically prevent them from recording using external software. There is language in the course policy form that instructs students not to record sessions themselves. Doing so would be an honor code violation.
Frances Tomacruz (she/her)
01:07:48
@Anne we still, however, recommend looking directly at the camera as much as possible
Peter Francis
01:07:51
@Diane That's what I thought. Thank you.
abeyer
01:07:58
@ Thanks Frances!
Alison Brauneis
01:09:16
@anne- like Frances recommends, you may find it useful to position the windows that you look at the most as close to the camera as possible. Testing a few possibilities out, and even recording yourself in a Zoom meeting and watching yourself later, can be helpful.
