This class is designed for the Zoom novice that does not know how to join a Zoom Meeting.  The class will begin with a conference call — with a tried and true technology that all are familiar with.  In order to participate in this class, there are three pre-requisites:

(1)   A computing device with a camera and microphone, such as a computer, laptop, iPad, smartphone, iPhone, Android tablet, or Kindle Fire.  For best results, use a device that is no more than five years old.

(2)   The Zoom application/program **must already be installed onto the device prior to the start of the class.**   (If you are not sure how to get Zoom onto your device, click here for some video tutorials.  If you are still unsure after the video tutorials, please contact the Museum, the instructor can make arrangements to help class participants install Zoom on their devices prior to the class for an additional fee.)

(3)   A telephone to call into the conference call that is separate from the device being used to access Zoom.

In this class participants will learn how to join a Zoom meeting from either an invitation web-link or by using the Meeting ID and Password.  Once in the meeting, participants will learn how to change from Gallery View to Speaker View and back again.  Participants will learn how to mute and unmute their microphone as well as to turn on and off their camera.  Additional skills will be included as time allows.  These basic skills will enable participants to become active users of the Zoom platform for social engagement.
