Any teachers out there using Zoom? Any suggestions or warnings? Going full bore on Wednesday

I love teaching a class that every kid is muted in both audio and chat. I just pretend I'm at home talking to a wall...
I'm sorry guys. I know there are teachers out there looking for ways to excel in the current situation. But I'm just bitter about it. There are ways MY kids could be better served, but it doesn't fit the "district"'s process...
I'm supposed to give kids 2.5 hours a week of material, and an hour of that is supposed to be via Zoom. I've reached the point where I will use Zoom for kids to edit and send me their videos while I silently watch. Sounds creepy, but if that time counts into my "instruction" time, so be it...
Did the first "full" academic day today. I had some kids over sleep, but can't complain about behavior with chemistry and AP chemistry students. Today (and tomorrow, block days) are just checking in, how you doing, expectations/procedures and how to turn in late paper copies (take a picture and email it).
Friday/Monday will be the first instructional. We are allowed UP TO 30 minutes of zoom per class.
First day of new material: Brief introduction to content, then go read or listen to content.
Next day, what questions do you have, they answer a couple of questions, here's a google form assignment.
Yep! Sounds about right!
