Faculty Spotlight: Will Masters "Active learning in lectures using Zoom chat and instant polling: Experience from a 50-student - Shared screen with speaker view
Annie Soisson
09:30
If you are not speaking, can you mute?
Dana Grossman Leeman
27:18
Yes, anytime you and students can be hard wired will improve the quality of experience for everyone. For some folk it’s not an option.
Beatrice Rogers
29:45
Are the yes/no responses anonymous? It doesn't look so.
Carie Cardamone
30:00
No, all participants can see these
Timothy Griffin
30:34
Will, can you give 1-2 examples of Yes/No questions from your class??
Jennifer Allen
31:34
Are you able to present poll results on your screen as you can do with Poll Everywhere?
Carie Cardamone
31:48
20% ish
Lauren Crowe
33:32
Jennifer - not really - Zoom has a (quite nifty sometimes) feature where it hides all zoom windows when you screen share. Sometimes, this is great (it hides video!), but you can't use Zoom screen share to share Zoom based features.
Igor Danelisen
33:33
how about using a pooling function in zoom?
Vasiliki Tsakalelli
34:32
I completely agree with Ron, I have experienced that too.
Elke Jahns-Harms
34:32
Jennifer / Igor - you can use the polling feature in Zoom - have to create the poll ahead of time. students don't see results until you share
Carie Cardamone
34:34
Zoom’s poll feature can be unstable at times .. and have to be added to the zoom meeting before the meeting begins. But it is a nice option for some simple questions, that can be then shared or not.
Dana Grossman Leeman
35:15
Zoom polls have to be set up when you are creating the live sessions.
Jennifer Allen
35:37
Thanks, Lauren. Is it possible to embed poll everywhere questions into powerpoint on zoom so that students don’t have to go to url in separate window? Is it possible to share Poll Ev responses on screen?
Igor Danelisen
35:41
I just seen somebody use it un a virtual conference with 400 participants. It was amazing.
Holly Taylor
36:47
Yes, you can embed Poll Everywhere in powerpoint and in theory it updates live with the results….it’s glitchy.
Carie Cardamone
37:07
The screen in zoom is not clickable, so you can put the URL on the slides, but a student would have to type them into a browser window or devise to answer the poll. One way around that is to use a poll ev address and have s students sign in to that address on a phone or browser at the start of the meeting, then go back at time as you make questions live.
Jennifer Allen
37:27
Got it. Thanks!
Lauren Crowe
37:46
Agreed with Carie. I also encourage them to download the Poll Everywhere APP on their phone. It makes it a lot easier to manage on their end
Carie Cardamone
38:46
(Rise in absolute #s or as a rate?)
Dana Grossman Leeman
41:00
You could give brief clinical vignettes and then ask if the practitioner proceeded correctly or not.
Beatrice Rogers
41:18
Does giving mailed incentives increase response rate in a mailed survey?
Igor Danelisen
41:51
That is amazing.
Silvina Choumenkovitch
42:05
Good epi question Lynn!!
Carie Cardamone
42:35
I’ve used yes/no/raise hands for 3 optional answers.
Igor Danelisen
43:20
can we aske them to log in under a pesudonim?
Igor Danelisen
45:00
I( agree!
Snoopy
45:44
Sometimes I reframe the question to be - if I were to ask you what you think the answer to this question is - what would you respond (so then the are CORRECT in that they are giving their response).
Elke Jahns-Harms
45:52
Zoom polls are anonymous - if you are willing to prep them ahead of time
carole palmer
46:18
when I click more, no change name option comes up. I get like, dislike, clap, need a break,away. where is that option?
Carie Cardamone
46:40
(More by your name, the more below by raise hand is what gives you that option)
Carie Cardamone
46:47
Hover over your name to see that more pop up
Dana Grossman Leeman
47:15
I think that some anonymity allows for intellectual risk and building some confidence. Students fear that “wrong” answers will result in diminished grades.
carole palmer
47:20
ah, thank you
James D Baleja
48:15
Poll everywhere is anonymous to the class, but not to the owner of the poll. If you log onto pollev.com you can see the id’s of participants and their answers.
Kate Schneider
48:44
interesting. for those who use it in the classroom, do you tell students this before the first use?
James D Baleja
49:21
Probably should disclose to the students that their responses are findable (to the instructor)
Kate Schneider
50:47
Have any female voices tried the AI? how have you found it works for female voices?
Dana Grossman Leeman
51:08
I find that the zoom transcripts for me are often quite inaccurate.
Larissa Calancie
51:14
Me too
Silvina Choumenkovitch
51:17
How about if you speak English with an accent?
Beatrice Rogers
51:30
I'd love the data on the linguistics of texting versus talking!
Holly Taylor
52:01
If you look voicemail transcripts they often only have humor value, suggests not so accurate for many.
Carie Cardamone
52:22
It’s roughly on par with the auto transcript provided by Kultura in canvas if you upload the videos there. They can be edited, but that is very time consuming for the instructor.
Elke Jahns-Harms
53:00
hearing students' laughter
Timothy Griffin
53:09
Non-verbal reactions from students
Holly Taylor
53:10
non-verbal feedback on understanding of lecture
Ryan Rideau
53:13
Seeing students reactions
Eva Lundsager
53:14
Casual conversation.
Silvina Choumenkovitch
53:15
connection with the students
carole palmer
53:15
speaking individually with students after class
Kate Schneider
53:15
wearing pants... just kidding. what i really miss are people laughing when i attempt to tell a joke
Paul Joseph
53:16
feedback from watching faces while I speak
Carie Cardamone
53:19
Listening to students conversation as they arrive.
Jennifer Allen
53:28
Seeing non verbal responses/reactions
Beatrice Rogers
53:33
I miss picking up on body language including wandering attention.
Dana Grossman Leeman
53:37
Reading the room
Vasiliki Tsakalelli
53:39
see my student's faces! I teach 240 students, hard to see them in zoom
Lauren Crowe
55:04
I have a very difficult time managing screen share and chat and seeing everyone's faces.
Dana Grossman Leeman
55:30
Yes, @Lauren, that’s challenging. Using chat strategically can help decrease some of the stimuli.
Holly Taylor
55:33
You can also do free responses (short ones) through Poll Everywhere.
Elke Jahns-Harms
55:37
I find it hugely helpful to have 2 monitors.
Lauren Crowe
55:44
That was with 30 students... I think a second screen would be necessary or an LA/TA.
Elke Jahns-Harms
55:50
1 for the screen share, the other for my notes, chat box, etc
Lauren Crowe
56:06
@Dana I did! but if they commented saying I forgot to screen share or something I didn't see it until someone physically spoke up
Vasiliki Tsakalelli
56:11
I do have my liaison collecting the questions in chat box
Vasiliki Tsakalelli
56:24
very helpful
Beatrice Rogers
57:42
I wish we'd had time for testing the breakouts. I had trouble with them last semester.
Lauren Crowe
57:50
@Vasiliki - Great suggestion. I appointed a note-taker every class, but I could also appoint a chat-watcher!
Carie Cardamone
01:02:19
For raise hands, if you have a cohost watching the ‘participants’ tab then can interject when someones hand is raised. But it’s very hard to watch if you are alone with many participants.
Dana Grossman Leeman
01:02:56
This has been fantastic, Will, thank you.
Marisa Hastie
01:03:05
Thank you for the suggestions and reflection on this!
Timothy Griffin
01:03:09
Super helpful Will!
Lauren Crowe
01:03:22
Thank you Will!
Larissa Calancie
01:03:25
Agreed, thank you!
James D Baleja
01:03:35
where will the recording of this session be available? I want to share it with some of my colleagues
Lauren Crowe
01:03:53
@Laurie, I held 3 hour synchronous sessions this summer, happy to chat!
Lauren Crowe
01:04:36
Tons of breakout groups, often breaking out for asynchronous independent work, and regrouping
Ryan Rideau
01:04:44
I will send the video out to all participants
Laurie
01:05:55
Thanks Lauren!
Beatrice Rogers
01:06:27
You know we've been asked to prepare for in person, synchronous, AND asynchronous!
Igor Danelisen
01:08:38
This was fantastic. Very hands on.
Holly Taylor
01:09:04
Thank you. Very informative. I have another Zoom to go to.
Elke Jahns-Harms
01:10:20
Thanks so much!
Kate Schneider
01:11:07
thanks Will and everyone, this was super useful!
