Using Zoom

We will start class with a review of Zoom tools. Here's a brief introduction if Zoom is new to you.

Once you're in Zoom, your interface will include a black menu bar at the bottom (or top) of your screen. The menu offers a number of options:

 

  • Mute / Unmute - controls your personal audio
  • Stop Video / Start Video - controls whether or not your webcam is live
  • (Manage) Participants - click on this to see who else is on Zoom (and whether or not their audio / video is enabled)
  • Chat - where you can type in a question, comment, or response; see other comments from peers
  • Leave Meeting / End Meeting - at the close of class, you will leave the meeting; end meeting is only available to the Zoom host
