Test your audio settings by going to the audio tab and choosing Test Speaker and Test Mic or by choosing Test Speaker & Microphone by clicking on the arrow next to the audio icon in the bottom left corner.
Double check your input volume and input levels to see if your audio devices are working properly.
Try leaving computer audio and rejoining.
Consider calling in from your phone.
You can do so by clicking the up arrow from the microphone and selecting “Switch to Phone Audio.” From there, you can go to the “Call Me” tab when joining audio and Zoom will call your phone.
If more problems ensue, try restarting your zoom client.
Zoom has a whiteboard feature that can be accessed through the Share Screen option.
Depending on your settings, anyone in the class may be able to annotate on the whiteboard as well.
If you have an iPad, Zoom has a built-in whiteboarding feature that works seamlessly with the Apple Pencil. Instructors and TAs who have a preference for “writing on the whiteboard” can consider this option.
If you save the whiteboard, it will automatically be saved in an internal folder on your computer. After closing the meeting, this folder will appear and you will be able to make edits or upload the whiteboard to Canvas.
