DEI Week is about to start! Your session is on the schedule and you have a Zoom link.
Thank you for your service to the USC Community by working to promote the learning and growth of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
Here are some last-minute tips for your reference.
Ensure your Zoom client is up to date
- Go here for the latest version.
Log into usc.zoom.us with your @usc.edu address
- Many of us have multiple email addresses within USC, including school-domain addresses. Remember that you must use your @usc.edu address for DEI Week (not, for example, your @cinema.usc.edu address or @pt.usc.edu address). Once you start your session, you can make any participant a co-host if you like.
- Please test logging into your account beforehand. If you have trouble, contact ITS at 213-740-5555, or your local IT staff.
- All registrants without a @usc.edu email address will enter the waiting room and will need to be admitted to your session. This setting cannot be changed. Under Manage Participants, you can admit them individually or all at once.
- Sessions were originally configured to automatically record by default. To disable this before your session, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You also have the power during the session to turn recording on and off.
- If you would like to check on the number of registrants for your session, you may email email@example.com.
Managing participants, including disruptions
- To manage participants in meetings and panelists and attendees in webinars, hover over their name under Participants. There you can change your selected participant’s role—you can make them a co-host, for example, or in webinars you can promote them from attendee to panelist or demote them from panelist to attendee. You can also, if necessary, remove the participant from the session.
- In meetings, under the Security icon, hosts and co-hosts can temporarily pause the meeting and remove a disruptive participant. By clicking Suspend Participant Activities, all video, audio, in-meeting chat, annotation, screen sharing, and recording during that time will stop, and any Breakout Rooms will end.
- Normal security features in meetings include the ability to allow attendees to raise their hand, allow attendees to speak and share their video, and mute participants.
