Our colleagues in the medical programme have put together some training on how to use Zoom in a teaching setting:

Basics of Using Zoom

The following video is all about basic set up of using Zoom. Here you can interchange the word “meeting” for “lecture” or “lecture recording”, as the process will be the same.

Using Zoom to Record a Presentation Video

Zoom is not only an excellent tool for online video meetings and webinars, it can also be used for recording video presentations. You can initiate a Zoom meeting without any other participants and you still have all of Zoom’s presentation tools at your disposal, as well as the ability to record. These features are all available with your University of Manchester Zoom account. 

Download our guide on how to set this up by logging into Blackboard and (once logged in) clicking here.

Tips and Tricks for Good Video

Our video training pages have Tips and Tricks on how you can improve video quality by just a few simple changes to your room set up. If you are interested, click the link.

Breakout Rooms in Zoom

Breakout rooms in Zoom can enable your attendees to discuss amongst themselves in small groups on whatever subject you want. Take a look at our video on how to set this up:

Additional Settings Training

Zoom has more settings than just the basics and for those of you wanting to run large conference calls, lectures or breakout rooms, you may need to set things up in advance. This following video covers all the options you have at your fingertips for Zoom.

We recommend that you watch this video if you have a complex set up to your Zoom. However, if you are just running a normal meeting, there is no need.

Further Help and Support

Our colleagues are running Zoom help sessions as part of PRiME and TELiM and have offered FBMH Staff the opportunity to join in. While some of the discussion may occasionally stray into the realms of the Medical Programme, if you are interested you can find help here (click the section on Using Zoom for Teaching).
