Easing access into Zoom sessions

Some effective practices I utilize:

Waiting Room:
I have wasted lecture time letting students in from the waiting room, so I have disabled it in favor of the passcode.

Name Changes on entry to Zoom Room:
I have disabled name changes, so I know the signed in ID.

Student Option in Screenshare Option:
In Zoom’s Screenshare mode (for me, usually a Powerpoint), students can switch video of me, which permits boardwork.
