EDTech 94: Zoombombing & Best Practices

This Room Is Closed

It is once again time for our monthly look at the higher education space. With us is our usual esteemed group of educational professionals, including AV Specialist for Stockton University James King, Assistant Director of Multimedia Services for Drexel University Rob Rasberry, Director of AV Services for the University of Arkansas Ernie Bailey and Director of Client Services for Bates College Scott Tiner.

This semester is just starting, but it feels like no other semester. Especially considering how much has changed in the last year, we take a look back at “semester one” and try to glean what could be done differently and perhaps more efficiently for this coming semester.

Next we take a look at an unfortunate resurgence in the higher educational space: Zoombombing. Although the name does sound insidious and incendiary, it is simply the practice of joining a conference to disrupt and annoy. Zoom’s taken some measurement of security to fight this, but it can only go so far. How can educational engineers keep their rooms safe from these kinds of distractions?
