How to use Zoom in public defences #
- The defence will still follow regular procedure as far as possible, hence it will still be open to the public and the audience can ask questions when invited to do so.
- You can follow it in Zoom even if you are not affiliated with NTNU, all you need is either to install Zoom or run Zoom in a browser.
- The Zoom session should start 15-30 minutes before the defence. This is to sort out technical issues before the defence starts. We recommend that everyone is present for this, regardless of whether they will play an active part in the defence or not.
- We recommend using a headset with a microphone, rather than to rely on the built-in microphone of your laptop. This reduces background noise and increases sound quality.
- We recommend sitting alone in a room during the defence, to limit noise and disturbances in the background. This is open to the public, so anything in the background will be visible to others in the audience as long as your camera is on.
- To limit disturbances from other applications on your own computer, please turn off sounds and notifications from other apps, such as mail clients or websites.
- Please turn off the sound on your mobile phone during the defence, at least if you are going to actively participate in the defence.
- If your are not speaking, mute your microphone. The host of the session may also choose to mute your microphone for you.
- Please do NOT use the chat function in Zoom during the defence. The only exception is when the audience is invited to ask questions.
- Please do not share your screen unless you are actively part of the discussion.
- You will not be able to record the defence, even though there is a record-button in Zoom. We ask that you do not take screenshots during the defence either, without the consent of every participant.
