How Students Change Their Name in Zoom

It is now day 2 of our distance learning journey. One thing that has stood out is that getting to know our students virtually is difficult when you can't see their names on Zoom calls. For a variety of reasons, students don't always display their first and last names. 

As I search for a permanent solution to this, here is one way to deal with the situation. In your Zoom settings, allow for students to rename themselves. Take a minute to instruct them to rename themselves properly with their first and last name. You many want to remind them their attendance depends on it. Make it a norm for students to always have their first and last names displayed during Zoom calls. 

The video below shows students how to rename themselves properly. Feel free to share this video with students or play during your next Zoom.
