Guidelines for Zoom lectures and meetings 

When learning in an online environment it is important to keep connected in a meaningful and respectful way. The following suggestions will help you navigate Zoom lectures and meetings: 

  • Be on time – Set up a few minutes early to make sure you can sign into the Zoom room on time. 
  • Be prepared – Have your materials ready and complete the required reading. 
  • Be motivated – Participate, listen, respond, share and support during sessions. 
  • Set yourself up in an appropriate space – If you can, set yourself up in an appropriate space so you can contribute to the session with minimal distractions. 
  • Practice – Test your Zoom connection - the more confident you are with technology, the better.
  • Keep in touch: ask for support if you need it – fellow students, student reps and your lecturers can help.
  • Mute your mic and turn off your video – If you need to multitask, mute your mic and turn off your video.
  • Respect the privacy of your learning community - Do not record / screen grab during Zoom sessions or share others’ online work without permission.
