In my Psych stats class we will use polls to collect data for us to analyze in an example problems.
Ginny McSwain
20:52
Can a zoom poll use choices other than yes/no?
Allison Mickel
21:04
@ Ginny, yes
Mary Nicholas
21:16
Definitely will be using polls. You can make them multiple choice
Ginny McSwain
21:29
Can you please show us how? :)

Used breakout rooms in the spring for small groups of ~3 to work out a problem and then come back with answer having nominated 1 member to share for the group
Lori Herz
23:06
I've done (1), (4), (5). I haven't done (2), (3).
Lori Herz
23:20
I'd like to try polling.
Jo Grim
23:26
I plan to try them all, but 5 will be a big part of course
Lawrence Tartaglia
23:26
(5) is a great utility

I like breakout rooms since my class is discussion-based
gordon bearn
24:05
break out and report back about difficult sentence
Sharon Friedman

I use all of them, but have students verbally comment on assignments.
Marina Puzakova
24:10
If you are using Shared Google doc, do you switch your screen share to that Google doc so that everyone can see on a screen?
Ageliki Nicolopoulou
24:11
I have done posing questions & breakout rooms but less the other options.
Luis Brunstein
24:17
share and talk about news articles in the financial pages
Peggy Kane

Jo Grim
25:17
Is there a formal process to acquire student consent that needs to be done if we plan to record a class?
jennifer swann
27:35
what i have seen done is a thumbs up or down - you can look at them or have them enter their voices by clicking on the participants icon ant ht bottom of the screen
Megan Cream
29:10
I sent out a survey via google forms (Do you consent to having our live zoom lectures recorded? Yes/No) and waited until everyone responded before I recorded our lectures.
Peggy Kane
29:26
Jo: Here is the original guidance on student recordings from the Provost’s office: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PCTPG2fpoCe3DJ3Usri6657AEVGaWT9W/view?usp=sharing
Jo Grim
29:32
thanks for the responses
Peggy Kane
29:39
Let me know if I have the permissions set properly...
Marina Puzakova
30:36
What if a student does not consent? Then an instructor cannot record at all?
Allison Mickel
31:19
@Marina that student can turn off their video
Marina Puzakova
31:46
but their name is still displayed, is it ok?
Megan Cream
31:52
What if they have a question?
Gregory Reihman
32:18
Marina: By that policy a student does not have to consent, but they can turn off their video. asking them and getting their input is a good way to build trust community.
Lori Herz
32:22
People can change their name in Zoom using "rename". That way they can be anonymous.
Gregory Reihman
32:50
That policy says you should not make the recording public. so it should only be visible to others in the class
Marina Puzakova
32:51
Great! Thank you!
Joshua Pepper
33:02
I believe that Lehigh has arranged for a site license for the Pro version of Socrative. Is that still correct?
Gregory Reihman
33:17
If you wanted to share it publicly, you should discuss it and get permission.
Antonio Prieto
33:44
Is there a recording on the best use of quizzes through Course Site?
Peggy Kane
34:06
Josh, we do not have a site license but have several paid licenses. I can check on the availability for the fall, if you’d like.
Barbara Malt
36:20
Can someone discuss the best way to show videos during a synchronous lecture? I normally switch back and forth to Youtube several times per class. I could do it via Zoom, but there was more switch time and it was a little confusing because opening the browser would cover my Zoom window and then I’d have to find Zoom again etc etc.
Marina Puzakova
37:43
Barbara: You can embed YouTube videos inside your PPT slides
Gregory Reihman
38:16
Earlier question: “If you are using Shared Google doc, do you switch your screen share to that Google doc so that everyone can see on a screen?” Depends on the activity. Sometimes, I assign a group of 4-5 students to contribute to “a collective course notes” in Docs during my short lecture—and write questions they have. During my lecture, I share images but not the shared Doc. Then, when I switch to the active learning part, I’ll sometimes share the shared, address questions those note-takers raised.
Gregory Reihman
39:36
Barbara: You could always just share the youtube link and have students watch it on their own browser—encouraging them to do something when they return so they’re not waiting passively when they come back.
james maskulka
40:59
Can you discuss Jamboard in more detail?
Gregory Reihman
42:13
Forgot: Let’s give Allison some thumbs up/applause!
Allison Mickel
42:17
@James, yes! Jamboard is like a big whiteboard that anyone can mark on. https://jamboard.google.com/
Gregory Reihman
42:25
Thank you, Allison!
Damien Thevenin
42:43
Thanks Allison
Samantha Miller-Brown
42:44
I’ve found Jamboard to update/sync much faster than Zoom’s whiteboard, as well
Cristina Koorie
43:06
https://support.google.com/jamboard/answer/7424836?hl=en&ref_topic=7383643
Allison Mickel
43:09
It allows users to add sticky notes, draw (like a marker), use "lasers", and import images
Cristina Koorie
43:13
^^ another helpful link for jamboard
Joshua Pepper
45:28
is kahoot like socrative?
Jo Grim
46:11
thank you to all the presenters
Marina Puzakova
48:17
Can you set up a breakout room in advance? it takes class time to set up a breakout room...
DongNing Wang
48:37
How breakout room works in general?
Beibei Dong
48:40
You can randomly assign the students into the groups, Marina
Gregory Reihman
48:41
Josh: Yes, Kahoot serves the same basic function—polling, quizzing, game-type quizzing.
Gregory Reihman
49:16
Dongning:

DongNing Wang
50:07
Got it, Thanks!
Peggy Kane
50:24
It is most effective when your students login with their Lehigh accounts (require authenticated users when creating the session)
Marina Puzakova
50:41
Thanks Bacy and Peggy!

What was the platform used for "Bilogy Jeopardy"?
Lori Herz
52:03
Oops, Biology Jeopardy.

I actually mirror my iPad to my laptop using sidecar…by doing this you don’t actually run zoom through the iPad. So I haven’t had any issues with echo…
Luis Brunstein
54:28
What is the name of this software?
Janet Laible
55:41
Similar to Luis: what is the software being used right now?
Heather Flyte
56:47
Is that a Wacom tablet?
Janet Laible
57:28
Thank you!

Instructions for attendance in Zoom: https://confluence.cc.lehigh.edu/x/kwX5Bg
Grace Caskie
01:01:18
I did not require webcams on because of concerns about equity issues. Some students do not have spaces they feel comfortable sharing with everyone.
Megan Cream
01:01:43
Agreed.
Joshua Pepper
01:02:18
How well can virtual background be used to relieve concerns about comfort with camera usage?
Gregory Reihman
01:02:19
Grace: That’s an understandable concern. You can poll students in advance to explain why it’s important and then ask if they are comfortable sharing video. Then you can encourage but not require.
Liz Young
01:02:43
what about asking them to use a virtual background?
Jo Grim
01:02:45
yes, I think the message here is to encourage but not require it. I also plan to survey my students at the start of the semester and to ask about their privacy concerns along with other questions related to remote learning
Christine Abraham
01:02:48
zoom also has background options
Gregory Reihman
01:03:12
You can encourage but not require if that is a concern for them and for you—that was the tone I set. I let them know how much better it was when we could see each other—and I told them that if they were deeply uncomfortable they could keep cameras off.
Ginny McSwain
01:03:40
Zoom backgrounds don't work on older computers.
Monica Najar
01:03:49
You need a recent computer to use those. Also, many of our students are in homes where many people are using the internet. They will lose the connection with over-stress.
Gregory Reihman
01:03:53
Also, the more interactive and interpersonal the class is, the more those many of concerns go away. (Students mostly resented having to keep camera on when they weren’t being asked to do anything or participate,)
Grace Caskie
01:04:13
Some of my graduate students also had small children they needed to attend to so I did encourage all to keep on but it was also OK if they did not feel comfortable for whatever reason. Most did keep them on but I liked that better than "requiring" their faces … allow them to make a choice. My students are all graduate students though which may ake a difference.
Gregory Reihman
01:04:15
*many of those*
Jo Grim
01:04:16
its important to recognize that it might be more than just a discomfort issue, some students might have safety concerns or other concerns-best not to assume everyone should be able to do it even if we think it is beneficial in most cases
Oriana Fisher
01:05:21
also not all students have webcams/high speed internet in their homes
Grace Caskie
01:05:49
Oriana -- agreed! One of my students actually had to use their phone to join the Zoom.
Lori Herz
01:06:04
Yes, my students enjoy working in smaller groups in the breakout rooms. They find that it reduces the isolation of being outside the classroom.
Gregory Reihman
01:06:09
In my pre-course poll: I usually ask “Do you have any special circumstances I should know about as we work together online during the semester?” That is a good way to find out concerns they may have and make adjustments…
Oriana Fisher
01:06:18
are there recommendations for how to involve students in synchronous class sessions who have those issues?
Megan Cream
01:06:23
Me too! I had multiple students that had to join our zoom meetings via phone
Jo Grim
01:06:37
thanks for sharing that wording, Greg
Oriana Fisher
01:06:40
thansk!
Gregory Reihman
01:08:06
Another good question for a pre-course survey, if you have international students is “How many hours are you ahead of or behind GMT? If you don't know, Google "timezone" plus the name of your nearest city. E.g. Pennsylvania is "GMT-4". China is "GMT+8." Madrid is "GMT +1" Do not include the GMT, just write the -4 or +8 or whatever your value is.”
Lori Herz
01:09:04
Yes, my students preferred live lectures, too. That way, they could ask questions in real time.
Grace Caskie
01:10:07
My students also loved that the synchronous Zoom sessions were recorded so they could go back to parts they wanted to re-hear and it also helped me be more flexible with those who could not join live for some reason (one was in South Korea so our class was at 4 am for her, one had 2 small children, etc.). Recording the zoom was way more beneficial than I had anticipated.
Damien Thevenin
01:11:27
@Grace. I agree. Recording and posting the zoom sessions is extremely helpful to students
Gregory Reihman
01:11:28
Some good week 2 questions:(1) What are some things I am doing that have been helpful to you and your learning for this class --and that you would like me to KEEP doing?(2) What are some things I am doing that have NOT been helpful to you and your learning for this class --and that you would prefer I STOP doing?(3) What are some things I am NOT doing that would be helpful to you and your learning for this class --and that you would prefer I START doing?
Heather Flyte
01:11:58
So should I be purchasing an iPad? I've used Chromebooks (which don't allow creating Breakout Rooms, btw) because Apple is pretty cost prohibitive for me. There's a bit of a cost to some of this.
Allison Mickel
01:12:37
@Heather I have not purchased any new equipment and do not plan to. I do enjoy having a second monitor but that was like $40
Damien Thevenin
01:12:45
@Heather. I believe that it’s possible with tablets other tan iPad

Thanks everyone! This has been great! Have to run.
Ginny McSwain
01:37:43
This has been really helpful. Can CITL have ~semiweekly coffee chats or something similar after classes start so we can check in more often with what works and what doesn't?
Cristina Koorie

Joshua Pepper
01:38:22
Yes! a regular teaching check-in session would be great!

Ginny, Josh: If you promise to come, I promise to host :)
Ginny McSwain
01:39:08
Will do!
Megan Cream
01:39:14
I couldn’t use the Wacom tablet either
Gregory Reihman
01:39:17
Better answer: Yes, we’ll be holding lots of sessions, both on specific topics and open drop ins.

Anyone else think the Chat feels like the old AOL rooms?!!
Ariel Sommer

Ariel Sommer
01:42:42
Regarding tablets (Steven Weintraub's question): using a "local" software program while sharing your screen seems to work better than writing directly on a web-based app like Jamboard
Ariel Sommer
