ARE YOU NEW TO ZOOM?


Before joining a Zoom meeting on a computer or mobile device (such as a smartphone, iPad, etc.), you can download the Zoom app from the Zoom Download Center (https://zoom.us/download). Otherwise, you will be prompted to download and install Zoom on your device when you click the "join meeting" website link. (The Zoom setup may take a few minutes to complete, so it is advisable to do this at least 10-15 minutes before the meeting start time, or even a day or two in advance.) You can also join a test meeting anytime to familiarize yourself with Zoom and your computer or device's camera and microphone settings: https://zoom.us/test.
