.Video Conferencing Best Practices.

  • Turn on closed captioning in Zoom for accessibility
    Closed captioning allows you or another meeting attendee, assigned by the host, to add closed captioning in a meeting. You can type the closed captions directly via Zoom or you can integrate a third party service, such as 3Play.
  • Tell participants when they are being recorded and/or the chat from the session is being downloaded
    If you are recording an online session, it is best practice to tell your students prior to starting the session. Additionally, it is good to remind them that the host can see all chat conversations when they are downloaded (even those marked 'privately' between participants).
