Over the last several weeks Zoom brought along a host of new features such as high-fidelity audio mode, custom gallery view organization, multi-pin and multi-spotlight, and Self-Select for Breakout Rooms. Custom Gallery View provides instructors the ability to customize the view that is being shared with students, which is helpful in situations where the instructor wants to have specific students share during a class and can now place those designated students in a particular order on screen that is also then shared with the rest of the class.
As an important update for BlendFlex course delivery, Self-selected Breakout Rooms are now available which will allow students to select their own groups. This could be very useful in a class where you may desire for students to form groups based on their opinions on a topic.
The full details of all updates are available on the Zoom Website. As always, be sure to keep your Zoom software up to date.
