Zoom-bombing is the term for uninvited guests that join and disrupt Zoom meetings by sharing violent and/or pornographic imagery, racist rants, hate speech or other comments meant to disturb participants. Here are ways to protect you and your students.

Meaningful Online Learning

Effective teaching isn't limited to what happens in the classroom. This site provides information that will help you offer your students meaningful online learning experiences.

Where to Get Started

While getting started may feel intimidating, online teaching is not new. Consider learning about best practices from the following articles:

Going Online in a Hurry: What to Do and Where to Start
How to Make Your Online Pivot Less Brutal
How to Be a Better Online Teacher: Advice Guide

Where to Get Help

Contacting the Teaching and Learning Consultant assigned to your college (below) is a great place to start. You also have access to a wide variety of free campus and online resources which you can link to from this site. Just click the links at the top of this page for detailed information.

Faculty who need hardware such as a laptop, webcam, annotation device, or other hardware resources should first check with their department CSRs to see if local resources are available for use. If department resources are not available, some limited supplies are available through the Office of Information Technology for checkout. Call 2-4000 to check availability and reserve hardware. If faculty are aware of students who do not have hardware to receive online instruction, they should instruct them to check out hardware from this same resource.

iClicker has generously offered free access to iClicker Reef for BYU faculty and students. Just select BYU as your university and you’ll be able to access it for no charge through July 1, 2020. No code is necessary. They have thorough instructions here, quick training, and a brief training webinar on March 20 at noon MDT. iClicker support and the BYU rep are ready to help.

Top Hat has also generously offered free access to its polling and LMS software through the end of the semester. More information here on the offer. They are providing instructions and tips for getting started, Professors can contact Top Hat directly by way of email ( support@tophat.com), the in-app support button, or calling 1-888-663-5491.
