Use Zoom or Microsoft Teams to host a live class, meeting, or discussion.

  • Zoom is a videoconferencing tool that serves as a virtual classroom. It provides a range of tools for online lectures, class engagement, and collaboration. This includes guest lectures and panel Q&As, and Town Hall activities. Sessions can be attended live by students and can be recorded and posted for students to watch later. Take a look at our Zoom FAQ for more information.
  • Teams is a collaboration tool that allows classes and other groups to work together, share ideas, and meet online.


Record your live session and post them for students later! In accordance with BC privacy legislation, If you are intending to record a session, first notify students and explain the purpose (e.g. so that students can watch the session later).  Only notification is required, students do not need to provide consent for recording. After notification, students have options, for example, turning off their video, asking questions through chat, and/or reviewing the recorded version of the session.
