When none of the students speaks up
If you’re a student, you should know that your teacher or professor is most likely having a difficult time adjusting to teaching via a webcam. We truly feel sorry for teachers who try and fail to get their students more active in class, but that’s simply the reality of what remote learning is like.
For all the teacher knows, if your webcam is off, you could be fast asleep at your keyboard or in bed with your phone in hand. We’ve read that some teachers have stopped asking questions altogether since most students join Zoom meetings for attendance purposes, not to actually learn anything.
