This memo includes news about ten new Virtual Classroom (Zoom) workshops available for staff next week.

Staff workshops and resources

Virtual Classroom (Zoom) workshop

The one-hour virtual classroom workshop covers how to use Zoom to facilitate tutorials, seminars and lectures. Participants will learn how to share their screen, PowerPoint and webcam, as well as how to use the in-meeting chat, reactions, polling and breakout rooms to communicate with students. Recording sessions and scheduling a meeting through Learn.UQ will also be covered.

Individual Zoom tutorials

Staff can book a one-on-one consultation at their office with an ITaLI staff member. 

Using Zoom in teaching spaces

The audio-visual configuration of most UQ classrooms means Zoom is ideally run from a device, rather than the lectern computer, unless the room has dedicated video conferencing equipment. Please refer to the Using Zoom in UQ Classrooms guide.

Zoom guides

The Virtual Classroom using Zoom guides provide instructions on using Zoom to facilitate tutorials, seminars and lectures.

Adding backup teaching staff to courses

If you need to add backup teaching staff to Learn.UQ courses, refer to the Enrol teaching and administration staff guide.

The Library has produced a new guide for students on How to Study Online. The student Virtual Classroom (Zoom) guides have also been updated.
