In classrooms with both face-to-face and remote students, where the instructor needs to illustrate content such as formulas and math equations there are numerous electronic whiteboard solutions to choose from. UNH has a campus-wide license for Zoom, which facilitates both face to face and remote students in the same classroom. Enabling students to see and capture whiteboard contents can be accomplished in a number of ways.
A “concurrent classroom,” with local and remote students attending at the same time, is best managed with an assistant to operate Zoom during the instruction. Instructors should set clear expectations with the assistant on the tasks they will perform, and how they should interact with the instructor and students.
Microsoft Teams is frequently used for collaborative work.
