The Zoom Menu Bar:

The Zoom mobile app is available for both iOS and Android devices.

  3. Invite more people to join by email, IM, or meeting ID
  4. View a list of participants

Helpful Hints:

Video conferences are a great way to meet – and stay connected with – your classmates, instructor, and teacher aids (TA). To make sure you get the most out of every session, keep the following tips and tricks in mind:

  • Find a quiet location to join your session, and ensure you have access to a fast LAN connection or excellent Wi-Fi signal (if you’re on campus, use Eduroam).
  • Log in to every session using your full first and last name.
  • Join a session a few minutes early to test your audio and video connections. You should also make sure you have the latest Zoom app downloaded (Zoom.us menu > Check for updates)
  • Use a headset (or earbuds) instead of speakers and a microphone. The connection may sound fine to you, but speakers and a microphone generate too much static for others.
  • Mute your audio unless you are speaking (or in line to speak) to prevent unintentional background noise from disrupting the conversation.
  • When the video is enabled, speak to the camera (and not to the screen).
