.txt made my Wednesday

Since August, I've been teaching in Zoom. I often utilize the chat to share prompts to generate discussion and set up active learning activities. I wrote up prompts in numbered lists in Google Docs to copy and paste into the Zoom chat, however, my prompts trasnferred as block texts instead. This was not ideal.

🙁

I blocked off some time to experiment with other ways to copy and paste numbered lists into the Zoom chat. On a recent Wednesday, I wrote up my prompts in a numbered list with some spacing for readability in a .txt file. During class, I copied and pasted my prompts into the chat and lo and behold, my numbered lists with space for readability carried over successfully.

🙂

This is certainly not earth shattering, but this tiny tweak made my most recent teaching experience smoother.
