I am facing Network Issues

This is simplest and the most common excuse which works in this case is slow network.

Battery low

Camera takes extra battery and if your device is low on battery it is advised to keep unnecessary apps or tabs closed. And Camera tops the list of the unnecessary items in Zoom Tab (for me especially and my like- minded friends and readers)

Have to go get the door

We attend Online Zoom Meetings mostly at home and you cannot avoid or stop someone from coming home. So often you have to go and get the door for the unpredictable visitors, courier guys, house maids etc.

I am Sick

You are sick and you are actually looking sick or maybe you are attending your online meeting while resting on bed or the couch.

I have Eye infection

Eye infection, eye sty or related problems work very well too. You don’t want everyone to see your swollen eye or teary eye and your teacher understands that it makes you conscious and also will distract others.

I am not at home, attending classes from my Mom’s Office

You are out somewhere and there are other people in the room or surroundings as well. Keeping camera on will distract everyone, so it is better to keep it off.
