FAQ

ANSWER:

Yes.

Recording your live, synchronous Zoom class session is easy: at the outset of class, you only need to press the record button in Zoom, then select "Record to Cloud." The rest will occur on its own: your class session will be recorded and uploaded to your Panopto course folder. That process is not instantaneous and allows you time to alert your Faculty Assistant should you want to make changes to the recording (like light editing) before it is made available for your students.For more information, please see: UCLA Law School Quick Start Guide to Teaching via Zoom.

Pre-recording your asynchronous Zoom class session is done differently. Please refer to Recording and Uploading an Asynchronous Class via Zoom.

 

ANSWER:

Yes. Recordings are critically important for students who miss class because of illness or other reasons.

 

ANSWER:

No. Turning off your video to improve internet connection is a common practice for other tools, but it has little impact for Zoom.

 

ANSWER:

LawNET encourages all faculty to do what they feel will lead to be the best instructional environment for your students. If your class relies heavily on interaction, then you should try having a class where everyone's video is turned on. Several faculty members have reported that they have run classes successfully with the video of every student enabled.

 

ANSWER:

No. We discourage faculty from doing this, even if you have concerns with your home internet connection. Using Remote Desktop adds another layer of connection that will most likely reduce your internet speed.

ANSWER:

Synchronous Zoom classes Recorded to the Cloud will be automatically transferred to the course’s corresponding folder in Panopto.  

 

ANSWER:

The Zoom recording will include video footage of every speaker on the call, visual presentations that were shared with attendees, unmuted audio and all text entered in the Zoom chat box.

Class recordings made to the Cloud will not include private conversations in the chat text files. However, your private chat conversations can be saved mid-session by clicking on the “More/…” button in the chat window and selecting “Save Chat.”

When recording to your local computer, your private chat conversations are recorded to a chat.txt file.
