Zoom tips

Most of our recent interactions with colleagues and students have been through our computer screen. The news and our social media feeds are full of warnings about “Zoom-bombing”, referring to Zoom meetings. Unwanted guests can crash any event if we don’t follow these guidelines.

  • Set meeting passwords
  • Avoid sharing meeting or class details over social media or with people outside of your invitation list
  • During the meeting, review participant list and remove unwelcome visitors

FAQ

What happens if I paid for a subscription with my geneseo.edu account?

Once you sign in with your Geneseo.edu account you will have to join our domain and Zoom will refund the credit card the remaining balance of your zoom subscription. You may subscribe to Zoom with a non-Geneseo email address to purchase a pro plan. You can then change the email associated with your account to a personal email address. This will let you keep all your scheduled meetings. See this zoom article for more information.

What alternatives are there?

Google Hangouts Meet is great for department meetings and other multi-person meetings. You can easily add a Google Hangouts Meet to any meeting in google calendar with a few clicks. Google Hangouts supports participants up to 250, no meeting length limits, and provides dial-in numbers for all attendees.

For classes, we recommend Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate within Canvas.
