Digital Support for the Smith Community
Welcome to the new Digital Support site! Browse the menu at the top of your screen to find a variety of resources to help you with Smith's supported digital tools, such as Zoom and Moodle, as well as other information and announcements to help you with remote teaching, learning, and work. Check back frequently as we will add additional resources throughout the semester.
Updates and Announcements:
September 24, 2020
Zoom will not be implementing the previously announced update—to require a passcode or waiting room for all meetings—that was scheduled to take effect on September 27th. (The expected update was shared with some members of the Smith community earlier this semester.) At this time, there is no requirement to have a passcode or waiting room for Zoom meetings. If you wish to add one of these features to your meetings, you can follow the step-by-step instructions in this job aid: Securing Your Zoom Meeting - Selecting a Security Default.
We will continue to post updates and announcements about Zoom and other supported tools here throughout the semester.

As we start the academic year, it's also time to set up recurring meetings for the semester, including class meetings. While faculty have several options to do this, many are finding it simpler to set up their course meetings in Zoom, then add the Zoom link to their Moodle course home base. We have two documents to assist you with this: Schedule and Manage Recurring Meetings and Add Zoom Meeting Information to Moodle.
