New to Zoom? Instructions for New Users

Instructions for New Users:
If you’ve never used ZOOM before, be sure to download it on whatever computer/laptop or tablet you will be using for our class. Here’s a link for desktops, either Mac or Windows: For Tablets, head to your app store and find ZOOM.

Please do this before class as it will take you a few minutes to get everything installed and set-up.  If you are new to ZOOM, here’s a test meeting you can join to make sure everything is working OK for you:

Click the blue Join button to launch Zoom.

When prompted by your browser, click Open Zoom Meetings.
