IMPORTANT FAQs

The Graduate School highly recommends students ask a moderator to operate their presentation, to manage waiting rooms for the public, and to monitor online questions.

Additionally, we cannot stress enough the importance of following security protocol when you are using Zoom for presentations and meetings. 

Amid Zoom security concerns, here are four simple ways to help meeting attendees use the Zoom platform with confidence:

  • Safeguard the Zoom meeting link — The link is an open invitation to join your meeting and should only be shared with your attendees. Posting the Zoom link publicly like on Facebook is not a good idea! If you think your Zoom session needs to be open to the public, contact your local help desk to discuss options to fit the specific needs of your meeting.
  • Always log in to the Zoom app first — Before starting your meeting, make sure you are logged in to the Zoom app or the alaska.zoom.us interface. This enables access to meeting controls. 
  • Manage security — Once you are in your Zoom session, use the Security icon along the bottom of the session window to access controls to manage screen sharing or the waiting room, or to lock the meeting.
