How you can use Zoom

  • You can use Zoom on your computer, iPhone, Android phone, or Mac.  
  • You can use it on your desktop or download an app on your computer or phone.
  • You can listen in by landline phone as well. 

Video and Microphone

  • If you have a camera on your computer you can participate by video (or turn it off).  
  • If you want to talk you must have a microphone or call in on the phone.  

Here are some good basic requirements and directions

On your phone:

  • On your iPhone or Android - download the app from the App Store/Google Play - search for Zoom Cloud Meeting and download the app.

Once you are on the Zoom class/conference/meeting - with our without video, on your phone, tablet or computer:

  • Make sure you are in a relatively quiet place. If you talk to someone else when you are unmuted we can hear you.  
  • Consider earphones, or headphones.
  • In a large group we will mute you.
