Zoom logo

zoom是a video/audio web-conferencing and collaboration toolthat lets you meet with students in real time. Through Zoom you can do many classroom activities: present using whiteboards, share screens and resources, interact by voice or text chats, enable group discussion, and administer polls. Like Collaborate Ultra, Zoom can work in Canvas, but it can also accommodate large numbers of participants and show multiple video feeds at once.

In response to COVID-19, UBC is setting up institutional accounts for instructors to use that include more robust features than a free Zoom account.

Breakout rooms allow you to split your main session into separate, smaller sessions so students can interact in groups. You can assign the smaller rooms manually, let Zoom choose automatically, or let students self-assign into rooms you set up, and you can switch between the rooms at any time. Inside these rooms, all participants will be allowed to share audio, video, slides, whiteboards, and screens with just their smaller group.

Breakout room limitations

Before using breakout rooms in a lecture, it's important to know their limitations:

  • 可用房间数量由学生的总数决定in your lecture. These limitations also apply if you are using a Zoom large meeting add-on.
    • 对于200名参与者或更少的会议,允许使用50个备用房间。
    • For 201-400 participants, 30 rooms are allowed.
    • For 401-500 participants, 20 breakout rooms are allowed.
    • For 501-1000 participants, breakout rooms are only supported when you have the large meeting add-on, with up to 100 breakout rooms allowed. Request the large meeting add-on for your account by contacting the helpdesk listed for you in the section above forrequesting a UBC account
  • 运行会话时,您需要使用Zoom Desktop应用程序,了解学生如何分配到突破室。使用移动应用程序将无法正常工作。
  • Only the meeting host or a meeting co-host can assign students到突破室,因此确保您是主持人或主机或联合主机(例如,教学助理)知道如何执行此操作。


Using self-selected breakout rooms adds additional limitations:

  • 允许参与者选择他们的房间,会议主持人,会议主机(例如,您或教学助理),以及您的学生必须安装桌面缩放应用程序的5.4.6版。Anyone with an older version may not see this feature or have the ability to move between breakout rooms. To update to the latest version, you can click the profile icon in the upper right corner of the desktop application, and select “Check for Updates”.
  • Students will need to use the Zoom desktop application加入讲座。Self-selected breakout rooms will not work for them in the mobile application.

Preassigned breakout room limitations

We recommend using breakout rooms on-the-fly, since Zoom gives you the option to automatically or manually create groups (or let students choose groups) as you are running the session. However, if you want to pre-assign students to breakout rooms (meaning you set up the groups ahead of time), please be aware of these additional limitations.

  • 您最多地限制了200名参与者split into 50 breakout rooms when using pre-assigned rooms. There is no support for this feature in larger courses.
  • You will need approval from your faculty or departmentto use pre-assigned breakout rooms, based on an academic need. Upon approval, your faculty or department should provide you with a process for gathering the student information required to pre-assign students to rooms.Contact us如果您尚未收到说明,请在LT HUB中了解有关此要求的更多信息。
  • 您课程中的每个学生都需要激活缩放帐户。Your faculty or department should also tell you how to handle this with your students.
  • 学生需要登录其缩放帐户并使用Zoom Desktop应用程序加入讲座。预先分配的突破室在移动应用程序中不会为它们工作。
  • Only the person who schedules the Zoom session can pre-assign the students房间。如果您有别人(例如,教学助理)安排讲座会议,请确保该人知道如何执行此操作。
  • The same pre-assigned breakout rooms must be applied to all session occurrences, if you use a recurring Zoom session for your lectures. To use different pre-assignments (different groups), you will need to create separate Zoom sessions for each lecture.


Breakout rooms allow you to split your main session into separate, smaller sessions so students can interact in groups. Below are steps for running breakout rooms on-the-fly in a session. You can read more about limitations of breakout rooms and details on using pre-assigned breakout rooms (where the groups are set up ahead of time) in the section above.

  1. 在您的活动会话中,单击此处Breakout Rooms iconat the bottom of your screen to assign students to breakout rooms.
    • 根据屏幕的大小,您可能需要点击Morefirst to see this option.
  2. Select thenumber of roomsyou would like to create and how you would like to assign your participants to those rooms:
    • Assign automatically:平均到每个变焦将瓜分你的学生of the rooms.
    • Assign manually:您将选择每个房间的学生。
    • Let participants choose room:You will set up empty rooms, and students will select one to join.
  3. 点击创建。Your breakout rooms will be created but not yet open to students.
  4. 根据需要调整您的房间设置,包括手动分配学生和重命名,添加或删除房间。
  5. 单击选项COG图标管理设置休息室,包括llowing students to return to the main session and automatically closing the breakout rooms after a set time.
  6. 当您准备好开始突破室时,请单击Open All Rooms。所有参与者将被移动或提示搬入各自的房间。


  • Breakout rooms are versatile private spaces that may be used in other ways,如虚拟办公时间,一对一的会议,或考试envilation。
  • 任何未分配到突破室的人将留在主要会议中当房间开始时,包括您作为主机。
  • 会议室内的会议主机和共同主机可供选择:
    • 加入任何突破室,返回主要会议,或切换到另一个房间。
    • Closing all breakout rooms, which will by default show a 60-second countdown to everyone before returning them to the main session.
    • Broadcasting a message to all breakout rooms (e.g., share a question you'd like the groups to discuss).
  • Only the meeting host will be alerted if any students have requested help in their breakout room,他们可以通过点击在房间内的帮助选项进行帮助。
  • Zoom support provides more detailed informationenabling breakout rooms管理突破室

Ask poll questions during a real-time lecture with Zoom

The polling feature allows you to create multiple-choice questions (you decide whether students select one or several of the options presented) and then gather responses from your class during live lectures. You can create one or more polls ahead of time or on-the-fly during a session. You can also export results after the session.

创建a poll

  1. 如果you are creating a poll ahead of time:
    • zoom.us/meeting和sign in, if you haven't already.
    • 如果you don't see any sessions, follow the steps in the accordion above for scheduling a real-time lecture.
    • 点击the会议you wish to add a poll to.
    • 滚动到页面的底部。点击添加to create a poll.

  5. 如果you would like to share the results with students, clickShare Results。When you are done, clickStop Sharing


  • 只能安排Zoom会话的人可以为该会话创建或编辑轮询, although the polls can be launched by any co-hosts or alternative hosts. So if you want to use polls and you have someone else (e.g., a teaching assistant) schedule your lecture sessions, make sure that person knows to include them.
  • You can下载投票结果的报告after the session. When viewing the report, note that you will either see the names students provided when they joined the session or, if the poll was anonymous, "anonymous" as the student name.
  • 你是限于最多25个民意调查in Zoom for a single session.


如果您有足够数量的教学团队成员/ Invigilitor提供考试存在,您可以考虑在缩放的在线会话期间建立突破室。您和您的团队可以不断或定期监控每个房间的所有学生网络摄像头的直播流,并回答问题。您还可以要求查看学生的个人屏幕和照片识别。

Different settings should be used for a Zoom invigilation session than for a real-time lecture. These differences are specified below.

Schedule an exam

  1. 选择会话的主机和共同主机。主持人是唯一可以在候诊室建立会话并承认学生的唯一人。共同主机是其他不可能以及主机,创建,启动和监控突破室的其他常见者。
  2. 主持人应该修改一些默认缩放设置before creating the invigilation session. To do this, go tozoom.us/profile/setting并登录。
    • 点击the会议标签并设置以下内容:
      • Disable the "Private chat" toggle, so students cannot send private messages to one another.
      • 使能够the "Always show meeting control toolbar" toggle, so the host and co-hosts have quick access to the meeting controls.
      • Disable the "Remote control" toggle, to prevent students from controlling each other’s shared screens.
      • Dis能够“虚拟背景”切换,因此学生无法隐藏背景中的内容。
    • 点击theTelephone tab并设置以下内容:
      • 使能够the "Mask phone number in the participant list" toggle, to hide the phone numbers of students who join by dialling in.
  3. 主机应通过单击“仔细检查其为类大小进行检查的能力Profilein the left-hand menu of the Zoom website. If the number under “Capacity” will not meet the needs of your course, contactav.helpdesk@ubc.ca.
  4. 主机应使用早期部分中概述的步骤安排会议,以计划实时讲座,具有特定考试的调整:
    • 开始时间- 在实际考试开始时间前至少30分钟设置这一点。
    • The duration- Allow a 30-minute buffer at the start and possibly additional time at the end, in case students encounter technical difficulties.
    • A waiting room- Enable this setting to better control and know who joins the session and when.
  5. Let your students know to join the exam at least 15 minutes early to make sure everything is working.
    • 此外,请告诉学生注册加入缩放时将使用的名称,如果他们在缩放中使用其真实姓名不舒服。


  1. The host should start the exam 30 minutes before the official start time, and the co-hosts should join the meeting at least 20 minutes early.
    • The host and co-hosts should also join or have access to another space to communicate privately outside of Zoom, e.g., a channel inMicrosoft Teams
  2. The host should disable chatting class-wide in the main session, by clicking the聊天图标at the bottom of the Zoom desktop application, then clicking the三个小点在聊天窗口和选择中宿主
    • 学生仍然有能力与突破室中的每个人聊天,在那些房间时,共同主持人应该留意聊天问题。
  3. The host needs to give co-hosts the correct status in Zoom, by clicking theParticipants icon, then hovering over each co-host name, clickingMore,选择Make Co-Host
  4. The host or a co-host can monitor students as they start joining, by clicking theParticipants icon。如果you are using a waiting room, use this icon to admit students individually or admit everyone at once.
  5. Once most of your students have joined the session, the host or a co-host can follow the steps outlined in the earlier section for using breakout rooms, with exam-specific adjustments:
    • 分配共同主机: Zoom does not evenly distribute co-hosts when automatically assigning rooms, so the host will need to make manual adjustments to ensure each room has a co-host.
    • Setting options: Check the option to move all participants into breakout rooms automatically (so students don’t need to do anything additional to start their exam) and to allow participants to return to the main session at any time (so students can leave to ask questions).
  6. Once rooms are open and students in them, the host or a co-host can manually assign any latecomers by clicking theParticipants icon, clicking the分配给option next to the student’s name, and selecting theroom
  7. 所有的Invigilator都可以点击Gallery Viewin the upper right corner of the Zoom desktop application to see multiple video feeds at once. Any video feeds that don’t fit will be displayed on additional pages.
  8. 参加和验证学生ID。
  9. Make sure students know where to access the exam, how to ask for help during the exam, when the exam will end, and what to do if they finish the exam early. Then start the exam.
  10. 一旦考试开始,监视器将m在itor for questions and academic integrity. The host and co-hosts will need to coordinate with each other using Teams (or another external communication point) to move themselves and their students in and out of breakout rooms (e.g., to follow up on a question with a student or to ask to see a student’s screen).
  11. When the exam end is nearing, the host or a co-host can send messages with the time remaining to all the breakout rooms by clicking theBreakout Rooms icon和then clicking广播消息到所有
  12. 完成考试时,主机或联合主机可以单击Close All Rooms将学生送回主会。


  • 使用您的候诊室控制出席和身份验证。A designated co-host can admit each student individually, mark them down, and ask to see their ID.
  • 创建an extra, empty breakout room to have a private space that co-hosts can move themselves and the students in and out of, to accommodate anyone who wants to ask private questions or privately share their screen. This room can also be used to check student IDs.
  • When verifying IDs, tell students to cover the first four digits of their student number保护他们的隐私,特别是如果您在其他学生可以看到的虚拟空间中。
  • 您可以从教师服务中心下载一个类列表,其中包含来自教师服务中心的照片标识, if your class is too big to recognize students on sight.
  • Instruct students to keep their microphones off during the exam,除非直接问过一个问题。背景噪音可以分散房间里的其他人。
  • You can request individual students turn on their video, if they forget, by clicking the “More” beside their name and selecting “Ask to start video”. The student will receive a pop-up notification with your request.
  • Do a practice exam by scheduling a Zoom meeting to test this process with students prior to the exam, so everyone knows what to expect before the stakes are high.
  • 对任何经验技术困难的学生有一个应急计划with joining the session, maintaining a stable Internet connection, or showing their video.
  • 如果you wish to use recording, know that在lycloud recording is allowed and breakout rooms are not recommended for the invigilation, as recording within them comes with challenging constraints. Instead, record in the main Zoom session or consider an alternative remote proctoring approach likeProctorio


You may have heard of people disrupting or "bombing" Zoom sessions. To protect your lecture and increase security, do the following:

When scheduling your lecture

  1. Don't use your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) to host the session.Your PMI is a persistent session link associated with your account that anyone can pop in and out of at any time.
  2. Follow the recommendations in the instructions above when scheduling sessions to:
    • 防止学生在主持人面前加入(you).
    • 启用候诊室for any students arriving earlier than the scheduled session time.
  3. Don't share session links or passcodes through public channels,因为这允许任何人参加信息。

During your session

  1. Lock the virtual classroom讲座开始后。
  2. Be prepared to remove, mute, or stop video-sharing for disruptive participants在讲座期间。考虑获得教学助理或其他人帮助这种抚养。
