Teaching Over Video - Delivery Tips and Tricks

  • Pre-set your meeting to mute participant’s microphones upon entry. This helps to avoid background noise and allow your students to focus on your lesson.
  • Look at the camera to create eye contact with your students. This helps to create a more personal connection while teaching over video.
  • Take a second to check chat or your student’s video (if on camera) to check-in with your students and get feedback.
  • Speak as if you’re face-to-face with the class while ensuring you’re at the appropriate distance from the microphone for the best audio experience.
  • When delivering a presentation, sharing images, files or video, give your students a moment to open or take in what you’ve shared.
  • Embrace the pause. Take a moment after the end of your comments and allow for students to engage before continuing on.
