- Make sure that you have Zoom installed on a mobile device (phone or tablet). Do not login to Zoom with your Aalto account on this device.
- Using your laptop, start your Zoom session normally.
- Connect to the Zoom session as a guest with the mobile device. Do not connect to audio.
- Keep an eye on the mobile device screen during your lecture. This way, you can immediately see if screen sharing and Zoom polls work as planned.
This kind of extra monitor approach gives you better awareness from the students' point of view. For example, some programs may update the screen rather slowly via Zoom. If you notice this from your mobile device, you can slow down so that students can really see what you want to show them.
