So is polling only available to zoom meetings scheduled through Sakai?
Could you touch on external site tools, such as hypothes.is?/How to embed tools like this into Sakai?
Polling is available in zoom not only if zoom meetings are scheduled through Sakai
the external tool is enabled in Sakai in lessons - I’ll post the documentation link to Sakai
See how to add external tools to a lessons page here: https://sakai-duke.screenstepslive.com/s/sakai_support/m/88136/l/1089870-how-do-i-add-an-external-tool-on-a-lessons-page
This guide is useful for all Sakai questions
Great, thank you!
Do have concerns about engaging students in Zoom? Let us know!
Monitoring breakout rooms with several TAs - address logistics, time permitting
We have. a session on Using Zoom Breakout Rooms here, as well as all workshops you are able to sign up for: https://flexteaching.li.duke.edu/fall-2020/workshops/
Can you have more than one host "alternate host" and would that give you similar rights as a host?
The alternative host can also launch the meeting, which co-hosts are not able to do
you can have several alternative hosts
This is a helpful guide from OIT for students on class and office hour settings: https://oit.duke.edu/help/articles/kb0032726
Can you pre-assign breakout room group members in Sakai?
Can students be in the same breakout room every class session throughout the semester?
Wentao - you can pre-assign breakout rooms yes. make sure you have that option enabled in duke.zoom.us In order to add students, you need to use their net IDs not their names.
Elizabeth, yes if you either pre-assign or assign manually once in a Zoom session
@Elizabeth: you can preassign breakout rooms as you wish, including repeating groups.
So, if I pre-assign, then I run the risk of students not showing up, and then I might have uneven numbers in the breakout rooms?
@Elizabeth, yes that is correct.

Got it, thanks!
This may not be the right place to ask - but is there contact person for external tools? If I need specific help with an external tool?
I may have missed it, Do I need to have my iPhone connected to the zoom room in order to set up the last example Hugh showed us? I have a PC computer.
If I am a co-host, can I enter any breakout room?
If I’m leading a data science Lab and need to share code in real time with the students, due to Zoom’s no copying chat text, what’s the best way to share the code? And have it recorded for asynchronous students watching the Lab later?
Any Zoom best practices to recommend for synchronous hybrid situations where the class will be roughly half in person and half virtual?
Chris we have information on flex teaching here, for multiple scenarios: https://flexteaching.li.duke.edu/about-flexible-teaching/

How do you ensure that students don’t cheat on exams? I’ve seen Gradescope as an option for putting exams online for students to take, but how do we ensure they aren’t accessing their notes while taking the exam?
Jillian Wisse (she/her)
we’re trying to account for that by including the chat as participation
Options: Make a rubric for the students to self-evaluate in addition to your evaluation. Also, have different people from the group present on the final outcome.
We have helpful information on providing feedback and grading on the TA flex teaching site here: https://flexteaching.li.duke.edu/fall-2020/the-teaching-assistants-guide-to-flexible-teaching/#five
I’ll be sure to include in our followup email and share sample rubrics
also, offering more media through which students can participate (written, spoken etc.)
Jillian Wisse (she/her)
thanks guys, these were all really helpful ideas
Make it open notes
You could ask the students to turn on their zoom but its good to design the assessments following best practices , random question pools, adding the honor pledge and more
I took the LSAT this summer on ProctorU
Gradescope for Remote AssessmentEvery Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDTGradescope is offering weekly “getting started” workshops to help instructors learn how to use this tool. Gradescope will offer “guidance on how to deliver assessments remotely and outline various options” to meet immediate instructor needs on various assignments.
Thank you for all of your help!
Thank you all - and great questions!
Please look for the follow up email and being added to the online TA Sakai site
