With a new school year right around the corner, Zoom wants to make it easier for kids and parents to manage remote learning.

Focus Mode allows teachers to view all the video feeds from their students as usual, but students only will see their own and the teacher's feed. Zoom's theory is that this will keep students from getting distracted by their classmates, while still letting the teacher keep an eye on the classroom.
