How to ask a question by "raising your hand"
Zoom for Students Video
Etiquette is a term that is used to identify social rules for treating others. The use of "proper etiquette" in a distant learning course is just as important as in a traditional course. This section examines "netiquette" for distant learners. We encourage you to reflect on these rules and let them serve as a guide as you interact with others in your distance learning courses.

Be on time
Log in at least five minutes before the start of class.
Check your camera, speakers, and microphone in advance. Most video apps have a feature for you to test your speakers and microphone. Make sure the lighting and camera angle looks correct. Close drapes or blinds as daylight may interfere.
Be respectful of others. Don’t interrupt others, especially if the teacher is speaking. Instead, use the chat function or "raise hand" feature.
Display appropriate and attentive behavior. Treat web-conferencing sessions like you are in the classroom. Stay focused on what is being presented and refrain from being distracted by other devices and tasks.
Save your snacks for later. No one wants to see others stuffing their faces with chips while important class content is being discussed.
Speak up when talking and use earbuds or earphones. A listening device will enhance sound quality.
Keep your microphone on mute until it’s your turn to speak. This will eliminate loud or unexpected background noises.
Be mindful of your background. You will not want to have anything distracting in your background. You are encouraged to join form a quiet room away from heavily populated areas.
Dress and communicate professionally. This is an opportunity for you to prepare for the professional world, which will likely include a good number of virtual meetings. The FHU dress code applies to what is seen on camera. Wear or say things that you would wear or say in the classroom.
Professional image also applies to written communication. Use correct spelling and grammar and avoid texting abbreviations and acronyms.
