Streaming video quality is affected by copyright restrictions, bandwidth capacity, Zoom/Google meeting settings, and personal computer configurations. Many problems have been reported with online synchronous in-class viewing.
Ask students to view the film or film segments independently, with separate authentication, in a dedicated window with Zoom audio muted. (Please follow the browser recommendations in the database descriptions.)
Provide a time for the students to return to the main Zoom class meeting for discussion after the segments have been viewed independently.
Some professors prefer that students watch the piece in its entirety before the start of class and then share a link to a short segment during the class for a second viewing.
