InterPro - Technology - Web Conferencing - Recommended Zoom Settings for Hosts

This document describes InterPro's recommended Zoom meeting and recording settings.

Recommended Zoom Settings for Hosts

Below are the recommended settings for InterPro Zoom meeting hosts. These settings are universal, meaning they apply to all meetings within your Zoom account.  Bolded settings have a greater impact on the student and host experience and are accompanied by one of the following highlighted details regarding their management. 

This universal setting must be enabled prior to the meeting start to be available during the meeting.

This meeting-specific setting may be enabled/disabled when scheduling a meeting or prior to the meeting start. This setting cannot be changed after the meeting start.

This setting can be managed during a meeting regardless of settings chosen prior to the meeting start.

Hosts might use different settings depending on their course delivery needs or personal preference. Contact the Learning Design & Technologies team at ldt@interpro.wisc.edu if you would like a consultation regarding how these settings relate to your course.
