This page provides information on helping faculty control online classrooms and prevent disruption while teaching remotely with Zoom.

Appalachian’s default settings for Zoom meeting screen shares are:
These settings are totally under your control, both for your Zoom account default and for each individual meeting.
If you want to change the default screen share settings on your Zoom account (the default for all your meetings):
If you wish for only the host to be able to screen share in all your meetings, change Who can share? to Host Only. Note that you can also Disable desktop/screen share for all users, and only allow sharing of individual applications, rather than entire desktops.
In reality, you can very easily change the screen share setting from WITHIN an individual meeting as well. Once in the meeting, click on the up arrow next to Share Screen, then Advanced sharing Options...
In the Advanced Sharing Options, you can toggle over to Host Only screen share if you wish for only that meeting.
If you make that change, no participants in that meeting will be able to start a screen share, regardless of your default settings. Conversely, you could set your account settings for Host Only can screen share, and use this same process in a meeting to toggle over to All Participants in only that meeting. It’s up to you as the host, and as the owner of your Zoom licensed account.
Click Manage Participants, mouse over any disruptive participant, click More, and select Put on hold or Remove.

Hosts can lock a meeting at any point. Locking a meeting means that no other participants can join, even if they have the meeting link and password (if the meeting has a password). To lock a meeting, click Manage Participants, click More at the bottom right, and select Lock Meeting.
