    • In Gerri C. LeBow Hall (excluding 121, 205 & 406), the correct microphone is Logitech Screen Share.
    • In Pearlstein and Gerri C. LeBow Hall 121, 205 or 406, the correct microphone is either HuddleCam HD or Cybertrack H3 depending on the room you’re in.

Step 5: Share Video & Content

  1. From the Zoom desktop application toolbar:
    • Verify the audio is not muted (the audio button should show Mute).
      • As you speak, the audio button should show a moving green bar.
    • Verify the video feed is on (the video button should show Stop Video).
      • You should see yourself on the video portion of the Zoom screen.
  2. Use the Share Screen button to share your content as you would in a normal Zoom meeting.

Tips & Tricks

  • When sharing content, consider sharing one of the monitors in it’s entirety using the Screen # options from the Share Screen button instead of sharing individual applications/windows. This will ensure that any content displayed on the screen will be visible to students in class as well as students watching the recording.
  • We strongly recommend using the annotation monitor with corresponding pen for any written elements to ensure handwritten content is visible in the recording.
  • If you are using the room whiteboard:
    • Make sure all lights shining directly on the whiteboard are turned off. The glare from the lights will washout the whiteboard material on the recording and students will not be able to see what is written.
    • Use the camera controls on the podium touch panel to zoom in to a section of the whiteboard for the clearest picture.
    • Only use dark, strong dry erase markers.
  • Repeat face-to-face student questions.
  • Pause the recording during breaks.
  • Consider borrowing a lapel mic from LeBow Tech for the recording.
