Multiple Zoom Breakout Room trainings are being offered tomorrow (Thursday) and can be seen here:at #779
All – just so you’re all aware, Zoom recordings to the cloud is extremely delayed due to volume. I’d recommend expecting around 24 hours currently before your cloud recording is available to share with students.at #809benalanParticipant
Hi, question about recurring meetings in Zoom. I had set up a recurring meeting in Zoom for my class the rest of the semester. I heard on a training just now that this might complicate the session recordings as well as attendance/usage reports. Could someone advise if this is the case? My hoped-for functionality is that after each class session I can get the class recording (to distribute a link on Canvas) as well as see who attended that session specifically. Do recurring meetings prevent me from doing this in a straightforward way? Thanks!at #810
I had zoom all set up correctly so that i could teach my class but it was trying to add it to my Outlook as a short cut. i signed in with my GMAIL account and now i can’t get back to my University account which is Pro and lets me have more than 40 minutes and more than 3 participants. i tried to change it back but it is saying my email or password is not correct.at #811
Nevermind. Fixedat #812bickfordParticipant
If I want to record a short welcome back video, or a minilecture, it seems overly complicated to do it through Zoom. Could I just record it using my ipad or something, and upload it somehow to Sakai? There is probably some technical reason I’m not thinking of that makes this suboptimal. I’d love some advice. Thanks! Susanat #813
@benalan – I’m not sure this would complicate the use case you’re describing. The advantage of recurring meetings is that you use the same link, so you don’t have to distribute different links to the class for each session. You might do a quick test and set up a recurring meeting for the next couple days (or a few throughout a single day) and test how the recording of each meeting instance appears for you – you obviously wouldn’t need to actually hold a full meeting, just record a few minutes each test case for comparison.at #814
I am good now.at #815
@bickford – You could certainly do a recording on your iPad and then post it to another video hosting service (like Youtube) in order to share the link with your students. That said, opening your Zoom meeting room on your iPad and recording to the cloud might be just as easy.
Unfortunately, Sakai doesn’t have the space for you to actually upload a video there.at #837Ivonne Chirino-KlevansParticipant
I have used zoom for teaching for the past 2 years. @ Kalina, I am not sure if you still have that question about zoom and break out rooms. I would suggest to create several session of say 30 each at staggered times. Then assign your TA’s to each of these sessions. There is a feature in the break out rooms that allows students to ask for help to the host. Please let me know if you would like for me to elaborate.at #856Emily BurkheadParticipant
Susan – you can upload videos to Sakai if you enable the Warpwire tool. From the Site Info, choose Manage Tools, and select the Checkbox for Warpwire – it’s all the way at the bottom under External Tools. After saving/continue, you’ll have a new button in the left panel, and when you go to the Warpwire area, click the large + to upload a video or capture one. I’ve just started doing this to make aspects of my lectures asynchronous and didn’t go through Zoom or any other hosting site such as YouTube at all, I just recorded the video on an iPad using Explain Everything and uploaded it directly to Sakai through Warpwire. I hope this helps!at #863
Emily – thanks for suggesting Warpwire! This is absolutely an option and the only reason we’ve pointed people towards Zoom with Youtube as a backup, is that they both provide auto captioning/transcription services for our students who need those accommodations. Warpwire, unfortunately, does not have that built in yet.at #883Rita BalabanParticipant
I have tried unsuccessfully to add an alternative host to my reoccurring Zoom meeting. Every time I enter an email address it says that the email address is not affiliated with a zoom account. Any suggestions? I thought all of our TAs and students had zoom accounts. Also, is it possible to enter a non-UNC address (e.g. a gmail address). Thanks!at #884
Rita – make sure your students have visited https://software.sites.unc.edu/zoom/ and that they have accessed their account. From there, they will be able to see their “Sign In” email, typically in the format of “firstname.lastname@example.org”
Be sure to use that email when adding them as an alternative host and if that doesn’t work, I’d try contacting help.unc.edu and they may be able to look into this for you on the technical side of things.at #885Gerald CecilParticipant
Hi, I want to setup a recurring meeting for each course. Zoom documentation refers to an outlook add-on ideally installed by the office365 admin account. But I don’t see evidence that this has been done for UNC’s site installation, no add-in appears to me. So, starting from a roster on e.g. sakai, how to I setup a recurring class’ zoom sessions?
