Poorvu Center’s online tutorials
The tutorials last an hour and they are about evenly divided into sections about Canvas, launching Zoom from Canvas, and using Zoom’s features. YOu can sign up at the Poorvu Center Online Workshops.
The first part may be old hat of most of us, but there is a lot to learn from the latter two. For example, the first thing to do, per the second part, is to make sure you have a zoom account by logging into Zoom via yale.zoom.us (or else you won’t have full functionality). In the last third, I found the segments on the “raise hand”, “sharing content”, and “breakout room” features especially useful.
Open Zoom Sessions
