Description

Zoom Video Conferencing

Zoom is a synchronous online collaboration tool that can be used to conduct and record online lectures, host office hours, set up group meeting spaces, and more—all with annotation and whiteboard capabilities.

NOTE: Zoom is continuously updating its platform security and features, so be sure to download the latest version when prompted. If you miss the notification... launch the Zoom App, then select Check for Updates under the zoom.us dropdown menu.

Zoom and Moodle

See Zoom in action by enrolling yourself in our Zoom with Moodle course.

NEW! FACULTY TIP: Students who Zoom on a Chromebook do not have the Annotate option on shared screens. However, the remaining functionality is comparable to that on a computer or laptop... although the video/audio quality is somewhat diminished.

FACULTY TIP: Be sure to log out of your Zoom account after use. If you sign into a duplicate device (such as a computer and laptop) you will be logged out automatically on the first device.

Zoom Cloud-Recordings Retention Plan

Effective May 3, 2021

  • AFTER 1.25 YEARS: ALL cloud-recorded Zoom video will be automatically moved to Zoom Trash 1.25 years after creation. Once a video has been moved to Zoom Trash, it will remain there for 30 days before it is permanently deleted.

  • BEFORE 1.25 YEARS: You may manually remove any of your own cloud-recorded Zoom video that is less than 1.25 years old. The removed video will be stored in your Zoom Trash for 30 days before it is permanently deleted.

  • RECOVERY: At this time we do not have a method to restore permanently-deleted video. However, if you would like to keep a Zoom-recorded video longer than 1.25 years we ask that you instead download the Zoom video recording (.mp4 file) and other associated files (audio transcript .vvt file, audio only .mp4 file, etc.) to your computer  and upload all to Kaltura.

What does the 2021/FA term timeline look like for faculty?

  Course Activity How to Accomplish Suggested Date
Pre-Term Start 1 - Get help with Moodle and/or Zoom

Visit the red bar on any Moodle page under Faculty > *Remote/Online Instruction FAQ* to access resources, upcoming Moodle and Zoom training, and/or email online@clackamas.edu for assistance.

Sep 20-26
2 - Create your remote teaching plan

You'll want to assemble your course assets: syllabus, learning outcomes, assessments, required textbooks, resource materials, etc. before you begin working in Moodle. Take some time to consider how you want your course structured—with a weekly or module/topics format.

Sep 20-26
3 - Update your syllabus

Include your communication and new course details as necessary. Be sure to include a link to CCC Resources and Information for Students During the COVID-19 Pandemic and CCC Support and Emergency Funding Resources too. When you're ready, upload it to Moodle or add it to your welcome email.

Sep 20-26
4 - Identity essential material to distribute

Check your remote teaching plan - what are the essential components for week one? What are your goals for this week, and do any of those goals rely on materials that need to be converted to a digital format?

Sep 20-26
5 - Send first welcome message

Send your welcome message to students to inform them how you will communicate throughout the term, through what medium, and how often.

Sep 23-26
6 - Distribute student remote readiness survey

In your welcome message, consider including this short survey to students. While this will not ultimately be the determinate of how you teach, having a better idea of your students' technology capabilities can inform important decisions you need to make.

Are you ready for online learning?

For example, if less than half of the class has reliable home internet, requiring synchronous sessions on Zoom might not be successful and an asynchronous option should be considered.

Sep 23-26
7 - Review week one

By now you have completed a review of your course content for the first week or two of class, considered how you will deliver your essential content, and communicated critical information to your students. (Take a deep breath.)

Before the class automatically opens on the first day of the term, consider the information you have gathered. Is there anything glaringly missing? Are there stakeholders (your chair, admin, online learning staff) who you need to contact for any information? Remember that you can hide course elements from student view until you are ready to release them.

Sep 23-26
First Week 1 - Post welcome and syllabus

Welcome your students through your established communication method (as you outline in your course syllabus). Introduce yourself and the class.

Sep 27
2 - Take attendance

You'll need to use an asynchronous attendance activity to record attendance such as:

Sep 27-
Oct 1
3 - Manage late enrollments

As usual, there is likely to be much shuffling of students during the first week of the term. If a student approaches you requesting a late add to your course, you will need to contact Registration.

If you have students who are struggling with technology and access, you can refer them to the Cougar Connect Information Desk.

Sep 27-
Oct 1
4 - Get started teaching!

Hopefully, by day two or three of the term you can start diving into the real curriculum of the course. Remember that there are best practices, pedagogical recommendations, and more technology resources available via the red bar on any Moodle page under Faculty.

Sep 27-
Oct 1
Ongoing 1 - Host office hours

Host virtual office hours. This means being available for student questions and consultation during a specific, predetermined period of time. You can host virtual office hours through Zoom video conferencing, or simply be readily available through email or phone...whatever works for you and your class.

Sep 27- >
2 - Deliver content

Keep calm and carry on: deliver your lectures, assess student comprehension, provide grade information and feedback, and engage with your class to the best of your ability.

 
3 - Get help with Moodle and/or Zoom

Visit the red bar on any Moodle page under Faculty > *Remote/Online Instruction FAQ* to access resources, see upcoming Moodle and Zoom training, and/or email online@clackamas.edu for assistance.
