Do You Require Students to Have Their Video Turned On During Class?

Hello all,

I'm trying to get some feedback to see if anyone requires students to have their video turned on during class. 

The class is required attendance, however, I have noticed in the past that students will often logon with no video, and if I call on them, they are never there, usually for the entirety of the class.  This is a math class that they don't want to be at, and usually are mad about being at because it's a low level college math class. 

I would like to require video being on but not sure how much push back to expect -- thoughts?


Thank you.

I teach at a community college, and we can only encourage students to turn on their cameras during Zoom sessions. We cannot mandate it due to student privacy concerns. I would suggest that you inquire about your institution's policies.
