Important info regarding Zoom


Fixing Zoom meeting room to your own personal meeting ID

Your meeting room can be created with a randomly generated meeting room ID.
If this happens, your students and you could be in different meeting rooms.
In order to avoid this, please check this setting at website.
– Log in and go to ‘my account’ ➡️’ setting’.➡️’ schedule meeting’
– Make sure ‘Enable Personal Meeting ID’ is enabled.
– Make sure ‘Use Personal Meeting ID (PMI) when scheduling a meeting’ is enabled.
– Make sure ‘Personal Meeting ID (PMI) when starting an instant meeting’ is enabled. 
✅ When you’re starting a new meeting with your Zoom software, click the arrow next to the ‘New Meeting’ button to bring up the menu and ensure you’re using your Personal Meeting ID

Use full-screen mode while using screen-sharing

When using the ‘screen-share’ feature to show the coursebook or Epic! storybooks, please ensure it is in the full-screen mode.

Otherwise, the letters will be too small and such letters are not legible for students.

For windows, you can simply press F11 to make the window appear in the full-screen mode.

The keyboard shortcut Control + Command + F can be used for For Mac OS.


Recording video call sessions in Zoom

  • Cloud recording is only available for paid users and students only use the free version. So, the recording should be made through the local recording (saving the video call in the hard drive).
  • Students should be allowed to record the lesson in the zoom software or no recording will occur.
  • Recording lessons on your own are recommended because you will need them to become a ‘premium’ tutor. Additionally, if you can show the progress of a student’s improvement it will be a great marketing tool to get more students.
  • Instruction and details can be found at


Assigning Recording Privileges to a Participant

At default, your students can’t record the lesson. You should either

  • let your student initiate the video call so they can record the video call as a host.
  • assign recording privileges to your students ( check the explanation below )

Annotation as a Viewer (for students)

Students can annotate on a shared screen as a viewer. This will enhance the participation and interaction of your student. The tools available will vary based on the version of the Zoom desktop client or mobile app and your device type, but participants can draw and highlight on the screen share.

To learn how to share your screen or annotate on your own shared screen, see How Do I Share My Screen?


  • Zoom Desktop Client
  • Zoom Mobile App
  • Meeting with screen sharing

Note: The meeting host can disable attendee annotation. If you do not have the annotation option, confirm that the host has not disabled annotation.

Useful tool for screensharing – annotation from student’s side

If your student uses ‘annotation’ feature in Zoom, they can interact with you in ‘sharedscreen’

They can point, draw or type on the shared screen

So they can fill in the blank, or circle on the screen etc.
