Meeting Controls

Zoom has many meeting controls that the host can utilize to make the conference more engaging. Check out the video below for more information.


Breakout Rooms

With Zoom, you can set up breakout rooms for students to discuss topics in a group setting, separate from the lecture. This can be a particularly handy function when dealing with large classes where group work is required. For more information, check out the video below.


Screen Sharing

If you need to present a PowerPoint, display a video, or simply want to show students what is on your screen, you can display it via Zoom's Screen Sharing option. This is an excellent tool for instructors and students alike that need to present content through a web conferencing platform.
