Zoom Basic Instructions

Your instructor may use Zoom to conduct their online classes. Here are a couple of Zoom tools they may use:

  • Breakout rooms
    • These are smaller group sessions that branch off of the main meeting. Usually this is an opportunity for collaboration and discussion with your peers.
  • Polls
    • This feature allows for some interactivity in the session as well as provide the instructor with feedback.
  • Reactions
    • You can use the emoji meeting reactions to communicate how you feel without interrupting the flow of the session.
  • Whiteboards
    • Another tool for collaboration or annotation.

Please also review the synchronous communication page for etiquette guidelines.
