HOW TO JOIN ZOOM
To join a Zoom meeting via the internet you will need a computer, tablet or smartphone that is connected to the internet and has a camera, speaker and microphone.
What is Zoom?
Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service to meet with others virtually - either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats. Zoom Meetings are video conferencing meetings hosted using Zoom software. You can join these meetings via a webcam or by phone. You can also record those sessions to view later
To use Zoom you will need: a video camera, either built in to your device or a separate webcam (most modern computers, smartphones and tablets have this built in) a microphone, either built in to your device or in the webcam (most modern computers, smartphones and tablets have this built in), or a regular telephone (for audio only, no video).
Connecting with Your Group’s Online Meeting
You will receive an invitation from your group leader that has a specific link and meeting ID number for your meeting
Setting up a Zoom Meeting
Please take a few moments before the meeting to make sure that you can get connected with the test meeting.
MUTE AND UNMUTE
During the meeting, if you are not speaking, you may wish to mute yourself. This will help eliminate background noise for everyone. Your meeting host can also mute and unmute you. To mute or unmute yourself click on the microphone icon. (When a slash is across the microphone you are muted and people on the Zoom meeting cannot hear you.)
