You may, of course, choose to have one-to-one communication with students via email, phone, or Skype for Business. However, Zoom Meetings will allow you to have one-to-one meetings where you and your student will have the option to share screens to show each other slides, documents or diagrams.This is good for students who have a lot of questions or for giving feedback on formative or summative work.
Equipment Required by Tutor:
PC or Mac
Web camera (optional)
NB: You are strongly recommended to use headphones or earphones and not the speakers of your computer. If your microphone picks up the audio from your speakers, this will result in an audio feedback loop and echo and/or disruptive audio feedback for your students.
Set up a Zoom Meeting
Currently staff should only add Zoom activities themselves and not delegate this to a colleague. The facility to allow delegated creation of Zoom activities is being developed.
To set up a Zoom Meeting you have two main options.
Set up a Zoom Meeting as an activity in MyPlace. You should add a password to the meeting to prevent other students from joining. You can find instructions on how to do this here (Step 3A). It's the same process as setting up a lecture except you'll only be inviting one student and not the whole class.
Set up a Zoom Meeting using your Zoom account by going to https://strath.zoom.us Then share the meeting link with your student by email or you usual communication channel.
