So is polling only available to zoom meetings scheduled through Sakai?
Elizabeth Aimone
43:56
Could you touch on external site tools, such as hypothes.is?/How to embed tools like this into Sakai?
Sophia Stone
44:35
Polling is available in zoom not only if zoom meetings are scheduled through Sakai
Sophia Stone
45:04
the external tool is enabled in Sakai in lessons - I’ll post the documentation link to Sakai
Sophia Stone
45:57
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

Monitoring breakout rooms with several TAs - address logistics, time permitting
Sophia Stone
54:58
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?
Sophia Stone
58:14
The alternative host can also launch the meeting, which co-hosts are not able to do
Sophia Stone
58:27
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
Wentao Wang

Can you pre-assign breakout room group members in Sakai?
Elizabeth Rublev
01:00:20
Can students be in the same breakout room every class session throughout the semester?
Anderson Hagler
01:02:11
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.
Anderson Hagler
01:02:42
Elizabeth, yes if you either pre-assign or assign manually once in a Zoom session
Hugh Crumley
01:04:11
@Elizabeth: you can preassign breakout rooms as you wish, including repeating groups.
Elizabeth Rublev
01:06:21
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?
Anderson Hagler
01:07:05
@Elizabeth, yes that is correct.
Sophia Stone
01:07:26

Elizabeth Rublev
01:07:29
Got it, thanks!
Elizabeth Aimone
01:17:52
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?
Anna Lewis
01:17:54
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.
Elizabeth Rublev
01:18:24
If I am a co-host, can I enter any breakout room?
Anna Lewis
01:18:54
Perfect, thanks!
Austin Allen
01:19:46
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?
Elizabeth Rublev
01:20:15
Thanks!

Any Zoom best practices to recommend for synchronous hybrid situations where the class will be roughly half in person and half virtual?
Sophia Stone
01:24:26
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)
01:27:20
we’re trying to account for that by including the chat as participation
Sophia Sarafova
01:29:18
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.
Sophia Stone
01:29:24
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
Sophia Stone
01:29:38
I’ll be sure to include in our followup email and share sample rubrics
Hugh Crumley
01:30:03
also, offering more media through which students can participate (written, spoken etc.)
Jillian Wisse (she/her)
01:30:12
thanks guys, these were all really helpful ideas
Sophia Sarafova
01:30:32
Make it open notes
Sophia Stone
01:31:05
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
