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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any issues – we’ll be online and ready to help.
