Zoom is a safe and secure app that allows you to engage in live Web conversations with your instructor using audio, video, and text-based chat features.
You will need one of the one of following devices to engage:
Download Zoom https://zoom.us/download . It’s free!
If you prefer not to download the app, you can alternatively sign-up for an account and log-on to Zoom for each class session with a meeting I.D. number.
After you click the link in the email to join the lecture, choose if you want to join with your webcam or without your webcam.
Sample join with webcam:
Sample join without webcam:
Access views by selecting icon in upper right corner
Full screen mode allows you to see the entire Zoom screen. To exit full screen, click upper left icon or Esc key on keyboard.
Active speaker is the default layout in Zoom. Whoever is featured is in the largest window.
Gallery view displays thumbnails of everyone in class.
Once the lecture begins, it’s up to the speaker to determine when questions and answers will be addressed.
How do you ask a question?
Because you will not be able to physically raise your hand on screen, you will need to “Raise Your Hand” within the application – depending on your device, there are different ways to do this:
Click on the icon labeled "Participants" followed by the icon "Raise Hand" or "Raise Hand" on the far right.
Another way could be by clicking next to your "Name", "More" then "Raise Hand"
Hopefully, you have just enough information to get started. There are many other tutorials and resources available online.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We hope to see you in class, virtually, soon!
