Update your Zoom App
April 1st Zoom released some MAJOR bug fixes so you need to update your Zoom application as soon as possible.
The guide linked below will walk you through this process.
Additional best practices that every teacher should follow:
**I have included screen images below to help you know where to find these additional options.**
- Use passwords for meetings – these can be different for each meeting if desired
- Do NOT use the personal meeting ID for classes – use the random generated meeting ID feature
- Enable “waiting room” on all of the meetings – link from yesterday
- Turn off screen sharing by participants – this is now the default, this can also be turned back on dynamically during meetings
- Use the “manage participants” feature to monitor who is in the meeting – if necessary, remove uninvited guest( there is also an option of “not allowing removed participants from rejoining” this can also be easily enabled.
- Lock the meeting once everyone is in – this is also done from the Manage Participants icon
Login to your Zoom Online Account
If you have meetings already scheduled you can still EDIT these options. Just go back to the meeting and at the bottom left-click on EDIT THIS MEETING.
From the SETTING menu option you can set 'defaults' for all of your meetings going forward.
When toggles are BLUE they are active (ON)
Check ALL SETTINGS for Zoom and adjust accordingly. Some of the setting options you should check are below.
