  • HOW DO I GET ON ZOOM? You will receive an email that contains a URL. You must click on that, or copy and paste the URL into your browser. If you have not installed Zoom on your computer, there will be a message on your screen explaining how to do that. You can do it ahead of time to save hassle. There is one more item to click, then you will be taken to the meeting. If you need to speak, make sure your microphone icon (lower left) does not have a red line through it. On the other hand, if you are in a noisy place, it’s best to mute your mike. There is also a little TV camera icon. You can click your camera on and off, if you want to be seen or remain invisible. On some computers, you might have to turn the camera on in your machine settings, or physically remove a little cover on the lens. CLICK HERE for an introductory video to help you get on Zoom.
