Zoom has recently released several new features that help educators connect and engage with their students better. We would like to take a moment to highlight two of those new features:

Share audio in Breakout Rooms

Hosts can now broadcast the audio and video from a screen share in the main session into Breakout Rooms, enabling you to show videos with audio for a richer content experience.

Instant video messages in Zoom Chat

You now have the ability to record a video message up to three minutes long that goes directly into a chat channel. Students can submit quick video assignments to teachers directly or post them in a group chat channel, where other students can comment and provide feedback. You can also record a short video to answer a student’s question or provide a quick explanation that might be difficult to capture in a text-based message.
