Securing Meetings with Zoom

Privacy and security are a top priority in the world today and securing our virtual classrooms should not be treated differently.

Zoom is great where it allows several options to keep your meetings secure and safe so only the people we want in our meetings can join. After you schedule a meeting, you can go into the meeting and edit the security settings.

They have options for passwords, different Meeting ID formats and to have no one allowed in the zoom chat until you, the host, joins first.

Please password protect your meetings by enabling these settings below:
