We use Zoom Video conferencing for our meetings - click here for information
Some Helpful Tips for those not familiar with Zoom Video Conferencing:
1. If you arrive before the meeting room has been opened, do not leave. You can test your audio settings while you wait and you will automatically enter the meeting room when it is opened.
2.To raise your hand to ask a question do not raise your physical hand as the meeting Host is unable to see it. You need to use the 'Raise Hand'feature on Zoom or send a Chat message to the Host saying you would like to ask a question. The Raise Hand Feature on Zoom: If you are on a computer, open the “Participants” menu at the bottom of the Zoom window (see above image) and go to the very bottom of the window. If you are on an iPad look at the top of the iPad screen.
3. If you are on WiFi: to ensure a strong 'signal', close all your other programs. Also, if you share a WiFi signal with others and find your signal is often weak, ask them not to do 'intense' Internet activity such as video streaming while you are on your video conference.
➤If you do have a weak WiFi signal, try not to move around too much in front of your video camera as this increases the bandwidth you are using. Or, you can also turn your personal video camera off during the meeting.
➤ To turn off your video camera when on a computer, click on the video camera icon on the bottom left of the Zoom meeting window (see image above) so that a red line appears through the camera icon.
➤ And on an iPad, go into the Settings, find the Zoom App, and in the Allow Zoom Access panel, turn your Camera off.
4. If you have audio problems during the meeting, on a computer you can select the little white up arrow next to the microphone icon (see image above) and check to see your microphone and speaker/headset settings, check your audio levels, etc.
Please Note: The record feature on the Zoom control bar only works for the Host and our recorders. Meeting participants are not able to record the meeting.
