Deakin Learning Futures is proud to announce the launch of new Zoom training resources for Deakin staff. If you use Zoom for your online classes and seminars, you can now access convenient how-to guides and helpful tips on Deakin Learning Futures’ Training Resource SharePoint site 

The ‘Using Zoom for Teaching and Learning’ resources were developed in collaboration with faculty Learning Environments and CloudDeakin support teams, teaching staff and eSolutions. 

The resources are divided into four key sections: 

Getting started with Zoom
An introduction to using the Zoom integration within your unit site to schedule and manage classes and seminars, and recommended settings when using Zoom for teaching.

Managing and sharing Zoom recordings
Guides on how to record Zoom classes and seminars, share recordings with your students, and manage your storage limits. 

Using Zoom on-campus
Information to connect Zoom with the AV facilities in on-campus teaching spaces and tips to manage multiple cohorts in one session. 

Engaging students in Zoom classes and seminars 
Options and suggestions to make your Zoom classes and seminars as interactive, inclusive, and engaging as possible. 


We’ll also share key updates and Zoom releases through the site’s newsfeed, so ‘follow’ us to stay up to date!
 Check out the resources now. 

If you have any tips or examples on how you use Zoom for learning and teaching – we’d love to hear from you. If you would like to contribute or if there’s a topic or function you’d like to see covered just contact Jo Elliott at joanne.elliott@deakin.edu.au 

We’ll be decommissioning Blackboard Collaborate Ultra in 2022 so these resources will help you transition your online sessions to Zoom.
