Before the course time:
Share materials for meeting beforehand via Canvas, email, meeting invite, or any other means.
Ensure that your microphone and camera is sending out quality audio and video.
Ensure that your environment is as quiet as possible without echo and without any lighting issues.
Turn on Auto-Transcription for students.

Email students with any important new information that was shared through the Chat window during the meeting.
Let students know where they can download the course(s) recording (if recorded) and transcript(s) when they are available.
