Does Zoom operate efficiently when multiple students are logged on for a session? I am worried about the network traffic bogging down the network speed, esp since now everyone will be logging on & often @ peak hours.
Is there a resource you would recommend to teach students how to use Zoom, so that we don’t have to explain it to them?
@Jose I would recommend checking in with video at the beginning to have some presence with students. Then ask students to turn off video and mute when listening.
@Cindy, I have student support pages for using STudio and Zoom with my downloadable adaptable course shell
You can download this course layout in Canvas Commons. You will need to ask Karen for a blank shell.
Here's the Accessible Canvas Course Layout (Simple): https://miracosta.instructure.com/courses/23550/external_tools/5?launch_type=course_settings_sub_navigation
This simple course layout is no frills.
So quick recap: to maximize productivity & minimize latentcy issues, have students working on both ZOOM for audio + moderate visual BUT also use Canvas for posting, replying, interacting--yes?
Just faculty and student support pages, module/page/assignment/quiz layouts you can adapt for your course.
I’m planning to use Canvas Studio. Is there a way to switch from showing my face to capturing my screen in one recording?
Jose, yes, I would not rely on Zoom as a primary site for interaction
can you please walk us through the process of uploading via cloud
they can also speed it up
The annotation bar is in Zoom? Or in Canvas? Sorry, I’m a little confused.
View Options at the top of your screen -> Annotate
Ah - thank you
View Options is next to the green area that says “You are viewing Liezl Madrona’s screen”
can you go over canvas discussions, on canvas
How do you create a video/audio from this discussion you’re creating
Do you notify students through an announcement when the synchronous discussion will take place?
John, it’s really up to you. Announcement, email via Canvas inbox, post it on a page … all of the above ...
In one segment yesterday, I think Jim J or Sean mentioned that Discussions can become disorganized &/or overburdened for both instructor & students. Suggestions for the most efficient ways to use Discussions w/out getting bogged down? (I suspect one suggestion may be to make discussion activities w/modest point values but w/out the deep time commitments like super-detailed grading objectives.)
In many of our CS classes we use pair/group programming. One student is the driver (typing code), one is the navigator (giving directions), and the third is the tester. After about 20 minutes, students rotate seats. All three end up coding the same program on the same computer. Suggestions for how to do something like this remotely?
I do weekly modules and the discussions are related to the topic at hand. The students really like it that way. I do have graded discussions except in the first couple of weeks.
Sean, notes on recurring issues = students disappearing for multiple class sessions, or some students not participating while others drive the online discussion?
So if you have a graded discussion it automatically gets linked to speed grader?
Speedgrader allows you to see all student contributions to a discussion board at once
(Student-by-student as you are grading)
Do you give a final date for the responses. I find most of my students wait to the last minute to post which makes it difficult for the more conscientious to respond and generate the discussion.
@Catherine - If the intention of the assignment is for all students to experience all roles, you can achieve this in Zoom using Breakout rooms. Students can their share screens.
I’ve designed weekly modules and each has a threaded graded discussion (reply to 2 classmates initial posts), an assignment and mini quiz. Is that enough? These all have due dates (a week).
Breakout rooms is a feature in Zoom.
@Catherine and Zoom has a “remote control” feature so students can literally work on other people’s computer
Sounds good, thanks!
Another thought: maybe shape the discussion to make sure students don't recap the early posts, i.e. give several options for focused responses w/different intentions, to avoid the same X main points restated & thus creating a limited discussion.
@Pamela for sure, that’s plenty
The remote control is exactly what I need. Thanks!
how do they get different prompts
Sean can you pls share your rubric for discussion/assignment. Tks
Seriously amazing, thanks!!
For a few hours each week I have a “study hall” where students can come to work on their projects. I hop around answering questions as needed. I know in Zoom I can make breakout rooms, but I am struggling with how students can indicate that their group needs help.
Catherine, Breakout Rooms in Zoom have an “Ask for Help” button at the bottom toolbar that summons the host (you) !
huh... I don’t see it.
Catherine, see https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115005769646-Participating-in-Breakout-Rooms - it should be there
Maybe dependent on having the latest/greatest Zoom client and being on PC/Mac?
can we go into breakout rooms now to try it out?
What about using a graphics tablet instead of Ipad
Sean’s Discussion Task Assignment
No problem, Jonathan!
You’re the best, Sean Davis. Thank you.
I’m using a test bank from the publisher to create mini exams rather than full blown exams. They have a week to do it.
I have a question about using the "quiz" feature in Studio (mentioned yesterday). I could wait for the other session on Studio? Or if others are interested?
How does DSPS deal with time limits for online exams—for example, an exam that is open for a day or two taken by a DSPS student who’s allowed 2x time for their exams.
Has synchronization between question banks and the actual quiz questions been fixed?
Ok, so the 3 options are T/F, multiple choice and what was the third? No fill in the blank?
Jennifer - Multiple-Answer is the third one
I like it! Thanks.
How do you get it graded and entered into the gradebook?
i have to take continuing ed for the bar and it embeds codes during videos that we have to provide in order to get credit- that might be an option to ensure it is watches
in new quizzes you can do that- but not in classic quizzes
Thanks Kris. Is it possible to convert a quiz written in classic, but now you want it new?
so for me to draw on it, i need to receive it in word or as a pdf, or as a google doc? I’m an art teacher. Can i also receive it in canvas, and make it into a pdf myself? Kristina art instructor
In my class, students do presentations. I think through Zoom, I could make them co-presenters and allow them to share their screens. Is it fair to ask them to do this? What if they don't have a computer with a camera and microphone.
Candice, they can even do it via a smartphone. There is a Zoom app
Kris, or PPT
