Course Formats Using Zoom

Zoom for Web Conferencing

Most Harvard Division of Continuing Education (DCE) web conference courses are taught via Zoom. 
You can choose to teach a live web conference course that meets online at the same time each week or one with an on-campus weekend that has a face-to-face weekend session in addition to several online meetings. 

Zoom for Sections

Using Zoom for your Section Meetings is a breeze- check out our Section Meeting Page for more information, options, and steps to get ready.

HELIX Classroom

HELIX Classroom (Formerly Zoom in the Room) brings your online students into your on campus classroom.  This option is for courses that have students both in class and on line. Instructors and Teaching Assistants work with the Division of Continuing Education's Media Production Team to manage Zoom in the Room.  Take a look at this overview video to see HELIX Classroom in action.

HELIX Anywhere

HELIX Anywhere (Formerly Zoom Live) allows you to live stream and record your on campus class meetings for your online students.  Instructors and Teaching Assistants work with the Division of Continuing Education's Media Production Team to manage HELIX Anywhere.  Take a look at this overview video for more information on HELIX Anywhere.
