Zoom Guidelines and Expectations

This class will use Zoom for office hours. Students should follow general guidelines and meet participation expectations for Zoom meetings:

  • Use your given or preferred name as your display name.
  • Don’t use distracting or inappropriate profile photos or virtual backgrounds.
  • Minimize distractions, such as televisions and cell phones, when possible.
  • Try to put your device at eye level on a solid surface. Holding your device or placing it in your lap can add movement to your video, which can be distracting.
  • Don’t engage in other activities during sessions (driving, cooking, cleaning, etc.)
  • Mute your microphone when you’re not speaking to minimize background noise.
  • Don’t share meeting links, passwords, screenshots, recordings, or other meeting information. with people outside the class.
  • If connectivity issues impact your audio/video quality, try turning off your camera.
  • Be on time or notify your instructor if you will be late or unable to attend.
  • If you think you might have trouble actively participating in meetings, let your instructor know in advance, if possible.
  • Contact Loyola’s Technology Support Center at (773) 508-4487 or via email at ITS Service Desk, if you need assistance during a video call.
