Tracking students' attention

The Host and Co-host can see which participants have not had Zoom in focus on their screens in the last 30 seconds.

If you want to use attention tracking, you must click on the "Manage Participants" icon in the tool bar when you start the online teaching session. A clock icon appears in the list of participants beside any participant who has clicked away from the active Zoom window for more than 30 seconds.

Be aware that participants may use Zoom without direct focus on the screen by having it open on a separate screen or alongside some other software application, for example while taking notes using MS Word. Hence, although you may see the indicator, this does not necessarily mean that a participant is not being attentive.
