Getting Started with Zoom Video Conferencing

Click on the meeting link.

If you haven’t used Zoom before, you will need to install the plug-in.



Note: Pop-up blocker may block it. You must always allow Zoom plug-ins



Click on the installer



Click Run


If you’ve already installed Zoom, click on the link and the meeting will launch or open Zoom on your computer and click “Join a Meeting”



Enter Meeting ID and Name
Click Join


Once in the meeting, it will prompt you to join by phone. Use this dial-in to call into the audio.

Use meeting ID & participant ID when joining by phone.
Note: Audio by phone is clearer and a better option than “Join by Computer” but the second option is there if you are unable to join by phone.
