Zoom Best Practices & General Guidance

- 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

General Recommendations for Zoom Settings: Site HERE

- Use the Zoom client to host and join meetings whenever possible
- Configure Zoom to disable video sharing by default to prevent inadvertent sharing of video
- Software Updates
- Zoom provides a pop-up notification when there is a new mandatory or optional update within 24 hours of logging in.
- You can check for updates on the Zoom desktop client by clicking your profile picture then click Check for Updates. If there is a newer version, Zoom will download and install it. For more information, see Where Do I Download The Latest Version?
- Zoombombing and Password Stealing
- Take precautions to prevent uninvited guests from joining your meeting
- Avoid using your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) to host public events. Your PMI is basically one continuous open meeting that anyone with the link can join at any time, invited or not. Learn about meeting IDs and how to generate a random meeting ID (at the 0:27 mark) in this video tutorial.
- Only share Meeting IDs with people that you want to join the meeting. Treat it like a password, do not make it public.
- In advanced options, only allow authenticated users
- In advanced options, set up a waiting room.
- Dartmouth is not aware of any instances of Zoombombing, but if you do fall victim, please report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- For sensitive topics
- consider disabling the use of phone dial-in numbers
- consider setting a meeting password and communicating the password to participants through a different mechanism such as slack or text
