Top 7 Zoom Things To Know (Fall 2020)

  1. Ask Students to Activate & Confirm Zoom for Western: Using their WWU-provided Zoom account to log in may be required for some Zoom meetings.
  2. Update Zoom Software via Web or by Using the App: New features and security options release frequently.
  3. Record to the Cloud: Yes, we have the space! You can include a basic transcript and share (and later remove) recordings easily. 
  4. Learn about Authentication & Pre-Assigned Breakout Rooms - Require participants log in through WWU and explore the Breakout Room pre-assign option.
  5. Consider Recurring Meetings with No Fixed Time: For classes or office hours, simplify your meetings.
  6. Try a new Zoom Virtual Background: CIIA students created a collection of open licensed WWU/local photos designed to be virtual backgrounds if your computer allows. See also Alumni and Design System for other options.
  7. Stop fumbling! (Learn Shortcuts): Practice makes perfect but it can be useful to learn just a few keyboard shortcuts.
