If you are participating in a class via Zoom, you are expected to participate to the same extent as any in-person attendee. To that end, the following is required of remote learners:

  • Students must participate via Zoom with video turned on for the entire class period with a live shot of student clearly visible in the video.
  • Students must be prepared to unmute themselves to answer a question, brief a case, etc.
  • Students must use their full name as their Zoom screenname. No nicknames (unless it’s a nickname that you have given the school in your records), phone, numbers. etc.
  • Links to the Zoom session for each class will be posted in TWEN under “Weblinks.” Most sessions are set up as reoccurring meetings and the link will be the same from week to week.
  • You must remain muted unless instructed otherwise by the professor.
  • If you are in the NSL building, participating in a class that is being taught remotely, you must participate using your own device with headphones. You may go to any place in the building where you can socially distance – a classroom, the library, etc.
  • Your professor will provide instructions to you about how they wish to communicate for questions, etc. This may include using chat, designating a student to field questions on chat, using the “raise a hand” feature in Zoom, etc.
  • Recording of Zoom sessions will be available for students to review and download. They should be posted no later than one week after the class and will be available for up to two weeks for viewing or download. Do not contact the School regarding when a Zoom session will be posted unless a week has passed since the class.
  • Decisions about the format of exams for remote learners has not been determined.
  • If you have selected “in-person learning” for any class that for any reason is being taught remotely, you may switch your attendance to remote for those sessions without notifying the School.
