    Audio options Set the availability of phone audio. Normally, only computer audio is used, so set it to “VoIP only”.
    Meeting option If the “Enable join before host” checkbox is checked, the student can join the meeting before the host faculty member. On the other hand, if the checkbox is unchecked, students will not be able to join the meeting until after the host faculty member joins the meeting.
    Alternative Hosts You can set up a different person to host the meeting than the person you set up the meeting with. If a different person is teaching the class, you must set up an email address for the instructor (who must be the same course instructor and have a university contracted Zoom account). This is useful when there are multiple faculty members in charge of a course and the instructor of the day is not the same. For details, please refer to 14-04-01.
