How do I prepare for a virtual meeting?

The first time you try to connect to a zoom room, you will be prompted to install Zoom. This small application installs quickly, but you can install it now to make that first meeting go smoother. To download and install zoom use the link at the top right of this page.

When you enter most meetings your camera and mic will be off. In order be seen, click on the camera icon in the lower left of your Zoom screen. To speak to your students, click on the microphone icon (also in the lower left of your screen). You can join an empty room for a test meeting, to check that your microphone and camera (use the test meeting link in the upper left corner of this page).

How do I find my meeting room?

To join your a meeting you need either the Meeting ID or a web link to the room. Clicking on a web link to a Zoom meeting will open your Zoom application and add you to the meeting. To join a Zoom room using the Meeting ID, click on the enter meeting code link to the left. On the next page, enter your Meeting ID.

The left hand menu of your Canvas course may have a Zoom item that links to a list of regularly scheduled meetings. You can enter any of them, during the times listed, by clicking on the join button. Instructors may also send you Meeting ID's or web links to meetings in campus email, in Canvas mail or by adding a meeting to your Canvas calendar.
