Apart from being very useful for recording screen videos, Zoom has many more options to help teach and clarify anything being shown on the screencast. With Zoom, one can share screens, draw, type, and even chat. This is a very useful tool for teaching or holding meetings in which clear annotation is needed. Below we will demonstrate how to access these features in Zoom.
Zoom tracking is disabled!! - The feature used to track attendees in a zoom meeting.
ZOOM Desktop App
Drawing/Annotating During Recording & Meeting:
When recording, you can draw, drag, select, point out, switch desktop views, etc. To find all of these options open your recording/meeting screen on the desktop app.
Once you have opened the meeting or started recording, you will need to share your screen by clicking on the icon "Share Screen".
Click on the "Annotate" icon/button on the panel. This will give you options as to what to do next. Feel free to use the mouse, select tool, draw tool, and even the text tool on the screen you have shared.
