The University now recommends the use of Microsoft Teams for those requiring HIPAA-compliant video conferencing options.
Over the last several days, UT has made several changes to the security in Zoom to prevent unwanted visitors in our classes and meetings. And, that has also resulted in some confusion when trying to log in, join meetings, and more.
To try and alleviate some of that possible confusion, the screenshots below show you what it should look like when you log in and what options you should select.
A small number of UT faculty have reported unknown, and uninvited “guests” showing up at random in their Zoom meetings. And a small number of universities have also reported what’s now being called “Zoombombing”.
The chances of this happening to you are very low. But, it’s a good idea to know what steps you can take to prevent it in the first place AND what to do in case it DOES happen.
Now that Zoom is enabled in all your Canvas courses, you have a couple different options available to you when it comes time to schedule office hours.
But what’s the best option?
Should you schedule your Zoom meetings for office hours in Canvas? Or, should you do so from the Zoom website?
There are pros and cons in either case. So, to help you decide, I’ve created this short (10 min.) video to walk you through the steps involved in both options.
Do you need any help preparing for Fall 2020 classes?

Given the circumstances of what’s been happening around the world within the last few weeks, it’s safe to assume that what follows on this page is subject to change. That said, this is one of the resources available to you as you begin preparing to teach your classes completely on line beginning March 30th.
Evaluate and Revise Your Syllabus
Update any instructions around participation, assignments/deadlines, and other topics.

All Nursing faculty and staff are invited in person or virtually to a workshop where we will explore new online teaching and communication tools like Zoom and all the other resources available to help you prepare to begin teaching your classes online later this month.
To help you prepare for the likelihood that most of our classes need to be conducted online once we return from Spring Break on the 30th, here are some resources available right now as well as a few others that will become available within the next two weeks:
Would you like to use Zoom for your next meeting but don’t know how? Do you want your guest speaker to be able to see and hear your students during Q&A?
