Screen View and Recorded Meetings

Screen View 

In Zoom, you have the option to set your screen to Speaker View or Gallery View. This can be changed by clicking the view icon in the top right-hand corner of your Zoom window if you are on a laptop or PC. If you are on a tablet, the icon will appear on the left-hand-side of your screen. Depending on what mode you are in, the view icon will either say “Speaker View” or “Gallery View.”

In speaker view, the person speaking will be the main image in the center of your screen, while additional meeting attendees will be in a bar at the top of the screen. 

To change to gallery view, you will need to click on the view icon. This will reformat your screen so that meeting attendees appear in a grid, with the speaker highlighted in yellow. 

Recorded Meetings  

As an attendee, you will not have permission to record the Zoom session, but it is likely that your instructor or host may record the meeting to post for students who could not participate in the meeting in real time. 

When a recording is in progress, you will see an icon at the top left hand-side of the Zoom window that lets you know that the session is being recorded.
