Frequently Asked Questions - Zoom

Here we try to answer frequently asked questions about Zoom.

Eight golden rules for secure video conferencing

  1. Do not use your personal meeting ID for Zoom sessions. Instead, use a randomly generated ID which is only valid for a single session or a complete lecture series.
  2. Activate the “waiting room”. This allows you to see who tries to join the session before you grant any access.
  3. Provide all access data for meetings only via secure, manageable channels such as email or closed Moodle courses. Be careful when publishing data via open distribution lists like your website or even social media.
  4. Use always a password for your lectures and seminars. Keep in mind that the password is included in the link for your meeting. Before you publish this link make sure that you remove its last part which starts with ?pwd=xxxx or disable this feature in your personal settings.
  5. Lock your session as soon as all participants have joined by using the icon “security”.
  6. Watch your list of attendees. It can be used to remove participants and mute them all at the same time.
  7. With large groups, invite at least one co-host. Instead of having to do it yourself, this person can observe the participants, record requests to speak and so forth.
  8. Plan interaction properly. Regulate features like screen sharing or chat in advance. Switch off any features you do not need.
