FAQ

What about FERPA?

Changed:

  • The easiest way to be FERPA compliant: Do not collect student images or information at all. Tools may make it easy to log what happens, record sessions, or track student behavior, but that puts the onus on Cornell, and you as a Cornell employee, to handle the data according to FERPA regulations. Interactions like office hours, review sessions, informal conversations, even recitation sections may realistically require little or no such data to be collected.
  • Canvas is designed to adhere to FERPA requirements, but moving data, like video recordings of classes, into Canvas may involve steps where data is stored in a manner which is not FERPA compliant. This is an area CIT and CTI are working on actively, with things like changing storage quotas.

  • Use Canvas. CIT is working constantly to ensure the operations performed through Canvas are FERPA compliant. If you can set something up from within Canvas, do so. This includes recordings made with Zoom or Panopto. If initiated through Canvas, the process will conform.
  • Another way to be FERPA compliant: Do not collect student images or information at all. Tools may make it easy to log what happens, record sessions, or track student behavior, but that puts the onus on Cornell, and you as a Cornell employee, to handle the data according to FERPA regulations. Interactions like office hours, review sessions, informal conversations, even recitation sections may realistically require little or no such data to be collected.

How do I get a list of Participants from a Zoom Meeting?

  • Only the authenticated user who set up the Zoom Meeting can get this information. In particular, if a Course Assistant managing a Canvas presence set up the meeting, the Faculty member must request the report from the Course Assistant. For completeness, in setting up the meeting, the Course Assistant should make sure the Meeting requires Authentication to enter it and that logging is turned on.

Why doesn't fill in the blank work for me?

  • Check for Updates. Zoom is being updated regularly with feature tweaks and bug fixes. From within Zoom, find the menu Check for Updates... or similar. A pnel will appear (perhaps behind your frontmost window) either confirming that you have the latest version or inviting you to update.
  • Quit, restart, reboot. Weird behavior can sometimes be resolved by quitting Zoom, your browser, or some other tool you may be using. In some circumstances, logging out or even rebooting may be required to clear the problem.

How can I get a Laser Pointer in Notability?

  • Upgrade to the Latest Version.
 

Gotchas

Line: 109 to 119
 
  • The Device having the Role of (Host) can transfer that Role to another Device. This can be extraordinarily useful for:
    • orchestrating Breakout Rooms
    • passing responsibility for a Zoom Meeting to a different Participant (different Device), which may be a different Person.

  • WARNING! (Host) has the ability to End the Meeting and may do so accidentally when the Person controlling (Host) meant merely to Leave the Meeting. Depending how the Meeting is configured, this can be fatal to the Meeting (Everyone gets kicked out) and even its MeetingID (Nobody ever can get back in).
