Key Tips for Zoom Meetings: Click the Zoom link in the invitation to familiarize yourself with the controls. This link is located under the Join Zoom Meeting heading in the invitation. If you have trouble with audio or video on Zoom, please do not give up! You can always use the conference call option in the invitation. “Dialing In” is not ideal, but it will still help you stay connected. Try to remember to mute your microphone when you are not speaking – and “un-mute” yourself when you’d like to speak. This will cut down on the interference and background noise. Use the chat feature to ask questions and connect with others. When possible, good Zoom etiquette calls for you to use video. The power of this technology is the ability to “see” one another and promote connection. Unless there is a compelling reason to not use video (beyond, “I’m having a bad hair day”), please be sure to click “start video.”
The first time you click on the link (or blue Zoom box) you will be invited to download the Zoom app (say yes), after that you will be asked to open the app (yes). Also say yes to joining with your computer and turning on video. Once you are in the Meeting, you will see a toolbar at the bottom of your page. On the left side are the mute and video buttons. Near the center is manage participants, where you can click to raise your hand. Or use chat to talk to everyone or a single participant. In the upper right corner, you have options for speaker or gallery view (everyone). For those who need it: Adult class and worship meeting # is 820 506 985. Same number for next 6 weeks.
