Video conferencing is new for students, too! Help your students learn to use whatever tool you decide to use in your synchronous online instruction.

Zoom Instructions

Dear Students, we will be using the Zoom platform in our class.  You can find Zoom by going into your Canvas course at canvas.chapman.edu. In the left-hand menu click on Zoom. You will see our scheduled meeting. At the appropriate time, click on Start. You will be asked to join with audio and allow permission to your audio. For you to be successful in this new environment, I’d like you to please watch this short video on what happens when you join a Zoom meeting. Then, read this quick tutorial on how to use the Attendee Controls in a Zoom Meeting. The controls look different depending on what type of device and operating system you have. In the tutorial, click on the type of device or operating system for specific instructions.
