  • a good internet connection
  • the Zoom application downloaded to your computer or device
  • familiarity with Zoom (see below)

    1. Log in to Member Account Manager, using your Encore Learning User Name (your email) and password.
    2. Click on My Activities, then (under course name) View Class Media.
    3. Under Documents, open Zoom Info.pdf to get the Zoom ID and passcode (valid for all class sessions for the course).
    4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each of your courses.

You can play around with Zoom and test the settings on your computer ahead of time by using their test meeting functionality: https://zoom.us/test

On the first day of class, 15 minutes prior to the start time go to https://zoom.us/join and type in the Meeting or Webinar ID and then the passcode. Grab a cup of coffee and wait for class to begin at the top of the hour. Email info@encorelearning.net if you have any issues – we’ll be online and ready to help.
