QBS on-campus spaces

Zoom best practices and general guidance
Faculty teaching and course setup tips
- Use the Canvas template created by Amanda Albright for your Canvas course page to make it easier for students to navigate Canvas for their many courses
- Dual monitors can be helpful with managing your presentation and participants
- Add your TA as a Co-host/alternative host to help with meeting controls
- Change your settings to mute mics and turn off video upon initiation of the meeting
- Start the lecture a few minutes early to adjust your tech
- Allow students to join early so they can be social and/or troubleshoot tech
- Inform students of your student participation expectations: 1) use raise hand function or 2) open mic policy to ask questions freely
- Decide if you want video on or off. Do you want to see them live? Consider video effects on bandwidth.
- No live streaming of 360, only recordings
- Scheduled recordings are automated. We have submitted the schedule.
- Need to start on time and end on time
- The camera will capture you and the projection screen
- The recording will have two screens (split screen): the classroom (you & projector) and the PP slides
- No private conversations before or after time of recording. Shut off or outside of classroom.
- The net new benefit of Panopto is minimal as Zoom provides the same quality. The benefit may only be that you do not need to stand in front of your laptop. Otherwise Zoom works perfectly fine alone in the classroom.
- Recordings will be sent to you to upload to Canvas in case you need to edit. TAs can also manage this function as well.
