Taking attendance can be difficult through Zoom. Your students are on multiple gallery screens and you don't have the time to flip back and forth between screens while you check them off in your grade book.
Taking attendance doesn't need to be difficult. It can even be fun!
Use your Zoom Chat Room
Use your Chat Room to take attendance. Have your students type "I'm Here" into the chat room and, Viola!, your attendance has been stored in the archives.
Save your Zoom Chat Room
An important part of this process is to save the Chat Room to a file so you can see it later.
Click the ... box at the bottom right corner of your Chat column (see illustration). Select Save Chat and it will save your chat comments to the Zoom folder that Zoom created on your computer when you started Zooming a year ago.
