    Hello,
    The steps for the pre-assignment are indeed tedious and non-intuitive. Did you follow the steps found here: https://oasis.unc.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2020/07/zoom-breakout-room-pre-assign-7-26-20.pdf ?

    The two most common problems are:
    1. using “onyen@email.unc.edu” exactly for the CSV. Note that this email is not necessarily the students’ emails, rather a configuration used by zoom. The directions for getting these onyens are found in the linked file above.
    2. The directions also cover how students can check if they are logged-in properly…again not an obvious thing to see in zoom.

    You should also change your option back to “UNC SSO …”

    We are happy to look over these settings and help you get things fixed if you’d like to set-up a consultation: https://keepteaching.unc.edu/consultations/

    Best,
    Matt

    Hi Roger,
    If you can see the rooms initially and re-edit them, it would seem that you are doing everything correctly. Please submit a consultation request listing the times you’re free, and we can help take a look! https://keepteaching.sites.unc.edu/consultations/

    Hi Jeannie,
    Did you set the UNC Authentication to “UNC SSO for pre-assigned breakout rooms” rather than just the “UNC-CH?”

    I’m happy to zoom with you to go over your settings. It has definitely been a challenge! We can also review the Meeting report for the participants and see how students were logging in.

    We are having moderate-to-good success with Mike Crimmins’ >200 class.

    Hi Jeff,
    You needn’t worry about storage limits in Warpwire. Here are directions for automatically sending recordings from zoom to warpwire: https://oasis.unc.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2020/07/zoom-to-warpwire.pdf and https://unc.warpwire.com/w/p5sBAA/ .

    Can the 24 hour period given to students to take the exam extend into a reading day? For example, 12 pm on Friday, May 1, until 12 pm Saturday, May 2 (which is a reading day).

    Do instructors have to give a 3 hour exam? Instead could it be a timed 90 minute exam?

    Thanks!

    Hi Nels,
    There are several ways you could modify this activity to work remotely. If you are having a synchronous class session, you may use the breakout rooms to pair up students and they could record the audio and video to their computers.

    If your classes are not meeting synchronously, pairs of students could hold their own zoom meetings, record them and then post the videos for comments.

    The Voicethread tool in Sakai would be an excellent place for students to post their videos and allow other class members to comment. Additionally, this set-up would allow for better analytics for you and keep all of the student information in a secure, University authorized platform.

    To get some more help setting this up, feel free to schedule a consultation from the Trainings/Consult page, and there is a wide selection of help videos on this site if you want to try it out on your own.
    Best,
    Matt

    If you have a smart phone…

    Download the apps:

      Zoom
      Outlook
      Onedrive
      PPT
      1. You may conduct your session entirely from your phone over a cell network.
      2. To make it easy to rejoin the session quickly, store the meeting idea in your outlook calendar which you can also access on your phone
      3. Of course, it is easiest just to present from the zoom phone app.
      4. But if you want to display ppt’s, store them in your onedrive.unc.edu and use the phone ppt app to present. I do not recommend trying to create your ppt on the phone however.

    To be doubly-sure that the ppt’s are displayed, create an alternative host who has access to your ppts. You may tell this co-host “next slide” and let him/her run the slideshow.

    If your home wifi is shaky, you may accomplish many (but not all) tasks using your cellular connection and your phone. I always keep my phone handy when in a zoom session in case I lose my wifi connection.

    You may want to try Adobe Rush. You have access through the adobe creative cloud: https://software.sites.unc.edu/software/adobe-creative-cloud/ , and it is a lot easier to use than Premiere. Feel free to schedule a 1-1 consult, and we can help you get started! https://keepteaching.unc.edu/training/
