"Make Ups" for Virtual Class Meetings?

Hi everyone,


Apologies if this is a double post -  I couldn't quite find what I was looking for in a search.


What are people's strategies for doing "make ups" when students can't attend virtual class meetings?


At Saint Rose, we use Zoom for online courses pretty frequently. Some faculty will require students to watch the recording of the Zoom session as a way to participate after the fact, but I don't find that very engaging.


I like to have them do a reflection paper on the reading we would have discussed in the class. I've also considered writing quizzes on that material, but that's a lot of front end work for me.


What's worked for you?
