About this book

The goal of this book is to help educators teach effective live online sessions using Zoom. It offers practical pedagogical advice on questions such as:

  • Why and how to use breakout rooms?

  • Should you use chat, and if so, how?

  • How do you build community in a virtual classroom?

The book is based on the author’s own experience teaching online, observations of several colleagues teaching online at Harvard University and elsewhere, research-based principles of effective teaching and learning, tips from the readers of the first edition of the book, and, perhaps just as importantly, interviews with dozens of students who have had to adapt to online learning. This second edition of the book, updated for 2021, incorporates more innovative practices from a wider range of instructors and includes teaching approaches that are made possible by up dates or new features that Zoom launched after the first edition was out.

We want to hear from you!
