ZOOM Focus Mode was implemented recently to help prevent zoom bombing. Makes it so that only Host and Co-hosts can see others' videos. Same is applied to screen sharing.

Instructions on how to setup/use Focus Mode from ZOOM directly. Can send this out to instructors, but basically when you join a meeting (as Host or Co-host), click on the 3 dots/More option, turn on/off Focus Mode.
