- - Effective use of Zoom for Teaching Mathematics
- Internet quality can be variable. The audio may fade out or become unclear from time to time.
- Students may be in noisy environments – near a main road, a construction site, or on a flight path, that makes it harder for them to hear.
- Students may not be able to see you. This means that they are missing all your visual cues (body language) that they would get in a face-to-face class.
What to do
- Enunciate carefully. Speak clearly and not too quickly.
- Repeat key points in case they were missed the first time.
- Write down the key points.
- Check regularly that your audience can still hear and understand you. If you are regularly interacting with them, this will happen automatically.
