How to Use Annotation on Zoom (Jin-A Choi. Communication)

There is an “annotation” function on Zoom. When students share their screen, instructors can write, draw, highlight, leave comments, draw figures, point arrows, etc. on their screen in real-time. Instructors can also download their screen as an image. It is sometimes difficult to communicate exactly which parts of the screen are being referred to when we are limited to verbal communication. This is a great tool that enables instructors to give instant feedback on student work, and it closely resembles in-person feedback. It is helpful for the student to actually see what the instructor is referring to. A video tutorial on how you can do this. https://www.loom.com/share/b3123a7dda03453092b5b13f35e2a9d7

Using Screen Control to Assist Students on their Computer Screen(Kiho Lim. Computer Science)

Zoom has a feature under “Screen Share” where students can give the control of their screens to the instructor so they can receive assistance on their computers. When a student share a screen with instructors, an instructor can see an option “request control of the screen.” After the student’s approval (a message will pop up on the student’s screen), the instructor can control the student’s screen. Here are some screenshots for the remote control feature. Note that this feature is only available on Zoom app. If a participant joins a meeting on a web browser, this feature is not available.
