Tips & Tricks for using Zoom for CALL Meetings and Webinars
Quick Guide to Getting Started
As a participant in a Zoom meeting you do not need a paid zoom account
There are two ways to join a Zoom Meeting/Webinar:
Usual: Click on the URL link in the Zoom Meeting/Webinar invitation the Facilitator sent you.
Alternate (assumes you have downloaded the Zoom App on your device): Click the Zoom App Icon, click ‘Join a Meeting’ and enter the ‘Meeting ID’ and ‘Passcode’ that was in the invitation the Facilitator sent you.
Click on Join at https://zoom.us/test in advance of your meeting to confirm that your computer is “Zoom-ready” and you can practice the procedure to enter the meeting.
No recording of CALL meetings or presentations is allowed at this time.
Remember to mute yourself when not talking
Having light coming towards you (instead of from behind) is best
Most Zoom devices; laptops, tablets (iPad) and smart phones, have built in cameras and microphones. Most desktop computers need an ‘external’ camera/microphone or headset (with microphone) which must be purchased separately.
