Notes on Digital Classes

Here you will find a few important points to keep in mind, since many courses this semester will be taught digitally.

  • What you should have:
    • Webcam: Since many courses will be taught digitally, a webcam is the most useful way of interacting in class.
    • Zoom and Webex, the video conferencing softwares, available through the university. Login with your university account.
  • What we expect:
    • Email: Check your university email account at least twice a day. Ideally it should be installed on your phone. This is the primary means of communication at the university, so you need to make sure that you are keeping up-to-date with it.
  • Zoom etiquette:
    • For most seminars, you are expected to have your cameras turned on for the synchronous sessions. Most instructors and teachers will rely on the non-verbal feedback you provide to judge whether they are communicating successfully, or whether they need to cover points in a different way. If they can't see you, they have no idea if you're following what they're saying.
    • When you join a Zoom session, please log in with your full name.
    • Please treat your instructors and fellow students with the same respect you would in a face-to-face teaching situation (or better).
