Online conferencing tools such as Zoom allow you to set up virtual meeting and teach in real time over the Internet. Zoom includes interactive features such as text chat, screen sharing, and live captions, and will allow you to record sessions for later use.
NOTE: Hunter Zoom accounts will expire in March, but faculty can use CUNY Zoom accounts by logging in through https://cuny.zoom.us with their @login.cuny.edu credentials. We recommend that professors start using CUNY Zoom accounts at the beginning of winter and spring semesters.
Zoombombing is the the sudden, unsolicited appearance of objectionable, offensive, or otherwise disruptive images, video, or text during a Zoom meeting.
Trolling behavior is enabled by Zoom features such as screen sharing, chat, and file transfer, but you, as the moderator, can take several steps to stop Zoombombing before it starts.
