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.

Best Practices

  • 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.
  • Videoconferencing Tips
  • Connecting to a Zoom Session with a Phone  (any type, no video)
