Quick Tips for Using Zoom
  • If you are using an external camera and/or microphone be sure to plug them in before opening the Zoom application. We recommend using a headset if possible.
  • Only 1 microphone and speaker system should be active per physical location. Otherwise, the 2 systems may cause a loud screeching sound.
  • Be sure to mute yourself when you are not speaking.
  • Use the Chat feature to ask questions without interrupting the speaker.
  • You cannot record unless you are the meeting host, or the meeting host allows you permission to record.
  • Zoom sessions without a Zoom Pro user signed in will be limited to 45 minutes.

1. Mute or unmute your microphone 
2. Start or stop your video feed

4. Manage or view a list of meeting participants
5. Share your screen

7. Record the meeting
