Unlike Zooming from your home or office, there are a few extra configurations you'll need to make so your online students can see, hear, and interact with you and your in-person students.
We recommend you configure your Zoom client with certain basic settings as listed below. (As you become more advanced, you can change other settings) Settings are retained by Zoom - you do not re-establish these settings every time you have a Zoom session. If you have any questions about these settings, please contact us.
Log in to Zoom and click on the settings cog in the upper right hand corner of the Zoom window (just underneath your profile picture or initials).
Ensure the following are set in the Settings window:
Use dual monitors (Learn more about using more than one monitor)
Enter full screen automatically when starting or joining a meeting
Always show meeting controls
Automatically copy invite link once the meeting starts
Stop my video and audio when my display is off or screen saver begins
Ask me to confirm when I leave a meeting
Mirror my video
Automatically adjust mic volume
Suppress background noise
Automatically join audio by computer when joining a meeting
