  1. Took them a while to get the memo

  2. > Teachers […] said that lessons conducted through Zoom should be made secure by taking measures like requiring passwords to join meetings

    Zoom can already do that, but they obviously didn’t use it.

    > One male secondary school teacher […] said that some teachers may not be well-versed in ensuring that Zoom meetings were secure, since home-based learning had only been implemented since last week.

    No kidding.

    If you’re going to use a *public* video link with no password, that’s kind of your own fault – or the school’s fault (i.e. their I.T. dept) for not showing teachers what to do. Zoom lets you use a password, so use one.

    > Meetings and Webinars can require passwords for an added layer of security. Passwords can be set at the individual meeting level or can be enabled at the user, group, or account level for all meetings and webinars. Account owners and admins can also lock password settings, to require passwords for all meetings and webinars on their account. 

  3. Just set the meeting to private, so people need a password. I don’t know why the Singapore Ministry of Education can’t seem to figure that out. They should try calling their nephew for advice on how to use a computer.
