How to Use Zoom

For many of our online classes, meetings and webinars, we like to use a platform called Zoom. It’s easy to use! You can access on your phone, ipad or computer. Just follow the directions below.

Using Zoom on a phone

  1. Go to the app store and download the Zoom app
  2. On the day of the webinar, click through the direct link and it will bring you right to the meeting.

Using Zoom on a Computer

  1. Go to https://www.zoom.us/. You will be prompted to load the platform software. Click yes. You will be prompted to create a free user account.
  2. On the day of the call/meeting/webinar, go to the direct link and click through. That’s it! Usually the webinar host will have everyone muted and video off for participants. If you are in a meeting and it’s not off, you can switch that off easily.

Tips

  1. Double-check that you are on mute. (see videos above)
  2. You can change the way the video appears when there are multiple speakers or if it is a live meeting with all attendees w/ video on. On the top of your screen is an option for “speaker view” or “tile view”
  3. Don’t be afraid to test things out! 🙂
