  • Use your device as a second camera. You can use your smartphone or tablet as a document camera to show pages from a book; to conduct demonstrations in a cooking class; or illustrate painting techniques in an art class. Watch the slideshow and video at the end to learn more.

  • Review the Sharing Screen feature for class discussion. Whether you are using slides, showing a YouTube video, or sharing a document, you need to master the Zoom Screen Share function. This video illustrates how to manage this important feature, including how to stop and restart it for a class discussion. 

  • Split teacher’s computer screen to see everything. As study leaders, most of us teach on Zoom with only one computer screen, so it makes it difficult to see all the different windows. Learn how to drag your Zoom window to one side, your presentation to the other side and see your chat and participants if you want. Watch the slideshow.

  • What should I do just before my Zoom class? The most important moments of a smooth zoom class are the fifteen minutes before class starts. This is when you clean off your computer desktop, open your presentation and test out screen share. Here’s how.

  • How should I set up a Youtube video before class? Now that you know the important moments of a smooth zoom class are the 15 minutes before, if you are going to show a YouTube video, here are some extra steps you should consider taking.
