Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a reflection after hundreds of hours of Zoom sessions, and I'm on board with most of the recommendations. The idea of a 'panic' button is especially good. It would stop all video, chat and screen sharing in its tracks. A better way to share video is also a good idea (though I can't imagine YouTube cooperating with Zoom to make this possible). I'm not a fan, though, of handing over control of the layout of the screen to the instructor. I hated it when they did this with Adobe Connect. If you want to control the presentation, just share a video. Otherwise, keep the space interactive, and let people control their own experience. More: feature requests on Zoom. Image: Republicworld.
