Andrea, are you on an iPad as well?
Andrea Paras
19:17
No!

On a computer, move your mouse and you should see a small bar pop up at the top. Click "View Options" and there will be a drop down menu
Carolyn Creighton
19:45
Thank you Katharine
Katherine Drotos
19:49
One of the options there is "Annotate", click it and another bar will pop up
Andrea Paras

Thanks!

love color coding, but I do not think it is AODA-compliant. maybe OK within courselink?

Please provide these slides afterwards - there are many wonderful ideas.

Darren Robinson
48:47
Have there been any concerns brought forward by students about different professors using different web conferencing platforms?
Lena Paulo Kushnir
49:52
@Darren: I have heard that but it's not a one tool fits all. Instructional needs and learning out come goals should be driving the tool choice
Lena Paulo Kushnir
50:11
too many different features to put everyone in on one tool
Lena Paulo Kushnir
50:20
eg class size
Lena Paulo Kushnir
50:27
break out rooms
Lena Paulo Kushnir
50:28
etc
Teresa Crease
50:30
you can convert voiceover pptx files to a video format (e.g. mp4)
Bill
50:57
can you clarify if break out rooms can be recorded in VC or Zoom? Thanks
Darren Robinson
51:30
True. I expect students will get used to the different options in each tool, but it will take some time. Its taken me about a month using Zoom, Teams, Webex to learn the functions of each.
Teresa Crease
52:22
stream allows you to create captions, which you can edit and export the caption file.
Rich Couto
53:47
@Bill, in VC breakouts can't be recorded. I'd have to investigate breakout rooms in Zoom to see if its possible there
David Kribs
53:53
When recording a zoom meeting, is the chat recorded? For instance, if doing a class over zoom with a TA supporting the chat answering some of the questions, and having the meeting recorded, will students accessing it later have access to the chat?
Lena Paulo Kushnir
54:15
@ david: yes
David Kribs
54:24
Thanks!
Lena Paulo Kushnir
54:36
very slick interface
Carolyn Creighton
55:41
Breakout rooms in Zoom are not recorded as part of a cloud recording. They can be locally recorded on your computer if you are a member of that breakout room.
Irene Moore
57:32
I see some people using the wireless ear buds. Do they have microphones built in as well?
Rich Couto
57:50
some would. The apple airpods for example would.
Teresa Crease
58:58
gotta "run" to next mtg. great session!
Carolyn Creighton
59:08
Thank you for coming!
Bill
01:02:28
any technical challenges with recordings, e.g., file crashing due to size? should one break up the lecture?
Rich Couto
01:02:42
yes, the meeting is being recorded and a link shared with all registrants
Jhantu
01:03:25
Thanks.
Rich Couto
01:03:32
@Bill, it will depend on how you share your recordings. if Streaming, it shouldn't be an issue, if students download your videos then it will depend on their system.
Rich Couto
01:04:21
You may want to break your videos into smaller chunks for many reasons, including file size and just making them more digestible.
Darren Robinson
01:05:45
@Bill ,I had to break my lectures up into 2 or 3 pieces - the files I made were massive.
Rich Couto
01:06:24
@Darren, how did you host the files?
Admin
01:07:04
Is there any privacy concern if we record synchronous lecture and post it ?
Darren Robinson
01:08:08
@Rich Cuoto - I put them up in CourseLink. If I'd known I could use YouTube, I'd have done that. That's what I'm doing for the Fall semester.
Admin
01:08:35
I had one student concerning about sharing recorded voice or video of students
Rich Couto
01:08:39
@Admin, it really depends on how you host the file. If you use Stream you can limit the audience as you see fit. if you post to YouTube, you can limit it by URL, but then that URL could be shared. Same for the Cloud recordings from Zoom.
Rich Couto
01:10:25
@Darren, you can use YouTube at your discretion. Stream is very similar and integrated with Office 365/ SSO, which gives you more secure sharing options.
Rich Couto
01:11:26

Darren Robinson
01:11:36
Heh. @Rich Cuoto. What's Stream? I'm really out of touch with what's available for video lectures.
Rich Couto
01:12:15
@Darren, shared the link above :) and well have some more resources on the web site shortly

Another important piece in the hosting/sharing of lecture videos is reminding students of their responsibilities regarding academic integrity. While the technology can limit sharing to a certain extent, it cannot prevent students from taking pictures/video with something like their cell phone. Conversations with students about the expectations around use of the videos in a crucial piece as well.
Tamara Small
01:16:04
Do all faculty have access to Zoom?
Rich Couto
01:17:28
Zoom is free to use, but comes with some limitations such as # of attendees and length of meetings. Facutly can requests a PRO license with remove many of those limitations (but not all of them ie still<1000 attendees)
Shoshanah Jacobs
01:18:00
SO SO HOPEFUL we'll be able to get Zoom with 1000 student access!
Kate Puddister
01:18:00
How/where do we request a Pro Zoom license?
Tamara Small
01:18:05
So all faculty need to request this licence? And everyone will get one?
Danica Matovic
01:18:26
From what I understand, we are only allowed to use the Pro License of Zoom for instructional purposes. OpenEd has the license
Rich Couto
01:18:30
You can request it through CourseLink Support (courselink@uoguelph.ca)
Fiona
01:19:30
Sorry, gotta move to next screen… thank you so much for this excellent session! So much to consider.
Rich Couto
01:20:23
and correct, Zoom Pro license should be requested for primarily academic purposes. CCS has options for non academic purposes.
Bill
01:20:29
Thank you to all presenters, QandA support and colleagues. Very helpful. GTG.
Shoshanah Jacobs
01:21:30
If you'd like to experience a longer zoom/menti/breakout rooms demo that we did last week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezs7OWSzPAQ&t=1363s
Rich Couto
01:22:53
Thanks Shoshanah, I attended that presentation it was a great resource and highly recommend.
Darren Robinson
01:23:04
Yes - they also use it for studying for their finals.
John Ferguson
01:24:03
Thank you very much Lena, Shoshanah, Carolyn, Rich and everyone! Very useful!

Is the University looking at getting more Zoom licenses for the fall and winter?
simonehaerri
01:25:20
I am wondering how much flexibility we have if our class gets classes scheduled. Are we okay to just say use one of the scheduled class times for asynchronous work and use the other scheduled time slot for synchronous?
Michael
01:28:45
I am confused. Is synchronous having prof in class face-to-face with students or only setting a time that everyone participates via a screen?
Rich Couto
01:30:14
Synchronous just means everyone is participating at the same time. Where they are physically doesn't matter. It can be a mix of remote or in class.
Shoshanah Jacobs
01:30:26
Michael: synchronous is simply about when students and instructors are engaged, it is independent of platform or location.
Mohamad Abou El Nasr
01:30:58
Got to leave Thanks a lot
Shoshanah Jacobs
01:31:00
Simone: My interpretation is that it is pretty flexible!
simonehaerri
01:32:21
Thanks Shoshanah, if not, I will make it flexible :-)
Tamara Small
01:33:41
When will we have access to Zoom? As per your discussion of practicing, I would like to play around with the tool sooner than later.
Rich Couto
01:34:34
you can ask for the license at any time
Rich Couto
01:35:02
just contact courselink@uoguelph.ca
Tamara Small
01:35:20
Shoshanah - was the stamps tool in Google?
Irene Moore
01:35:25
I know they had limited Zoom licenses for the summer semester--I had to wait until someone decided they didn't need it. There are supposed to be more licenses this fall, though.
Rich Couto
01:35:54
Stamps was available through Zoom
Rich Couto
01:36:02
when you share your screen
Rich Couto
01:36:12
its their annotation tool
Andy Paras
01:39:07
GREAT session! Thank you!
Michael
01:39:10
Because there are discussions about face-to-face classes, it seems profs need to prepare for this....or universities say classes are only remote.
Tamara Small
01:39:21
Thank you! This has been extremely extremely useful!
Darren Robinson
01:39:23
Thank you everyone - great session!
