Zoom is a video conferencing application where many individuals can join the same meeting and share audio and video. It also allows for screen sharing and presentation mode. There is also the option to record the session to your computer so that you can upload it to your Canvas site for individuals to view on-demand.

Equipment you will need:

  • Device with a good internet connection
  • Headphones or earbuds (optional)
  • Microphone (if possible, a separate microphone can be better than your device's built in)
  • Web camera (optional, preferred for face-to-face contact)

A few tips and tricks

As leader of the Zoom session, you can mute participants when their background noise becomes distracting.

Zoom has a breakout room feature that allows you to put students into small groups and then bring them back for large discussion.
