MiraCosta Zoom tips + do you need a headset/webcam?

Hello, MiraCosta faculty –

In the last week, a lot of us have learned a lot about Zoom. Rick Cassoni did a great Zoom intro workshop and curry mitchell followed that with a deeper look on connecting with students in Zoom. Based on those and a lot of additional experience, I’ve compiled a 2-page set of Zoom tips for teaching with Zoom. These tips also can help you lessen the likelihood or severity of Zoombombing, which has sadly entered our world.

Scott Conrad has asked me to let faculty know that AIS ordered a number of wired headsets and webcams for faculty who may need either or both of these for a full instructional setup at home. If you are interested, please submit a Help Desk Request via the Portal. If approved, these items will be available for pickup at either the Oceanside or San Elijo campus at a time that works for you.

Best wishes!

Jim Julius, Ed.D.
Faculty Director, Online Education
