Conducting Zoom Meetings: Best Practices


This article provides recommendations for presenters to get the most out of Zoom remote meetings. 

Best Practices

  • Control who has access to your meetings/classesPrevent unwanted guests from interrupting your meetings and classes
  • Scheduling Meetings
  • Mute your mic if others are speaking -  As the host you can also mute the mics of your attendees if they are distracting the other participants. 
  • Use the gallery view for smaller meetings (up to 25 people) -  This will allow you to see all of the participants in equally sized windows.
  • Share your screen - Use this to show your attendees documents or other materials you are using on your screen.  Use the "Pause" option to freeze what is displayed on your screen if you want a still image. 
  • Turn on your camera - Your participants will be more engaged if they can see you.  Be mindful of your lighting and background.  Simple backgrounds are less distracting.  You should also try to keep your camera at eye level and to look at your webcam when you can to simulate in person eye contact.
