Teaching on Zoom: Features and Best Practices

Zoom is a video conferencing application that can be used to conduct live online lectures and have meetings with your students. Features that will allow you to engage with your students remotely include: screen sharing, a virtual interactive whiteboard, polling, feedback through reactions, chat and breakout rooms for smaller discussions.

In this one-hour webinar, participants will learn the skills and best practices for having meaningful classroom interactions using Zoom. Register for an upcoming session below.


Note: Following winter term 2, 2021, UBC will no longer be using the virtual classroom tool Collaborate Ultra. The tool will not be available for new courses from April 2021, and all access, including to stored recordings, will be removed as of July 31, 2021. Because of this, workshops for other learning technologies will be prioritized.

For more information on the discontinuation of Collaborate Ultra see the Arts ISIT Sunsetting Collaborate Ultra information page.
