Basic Information about Zoom

Zoom is a videoconferencing tool that is widely used for personal and professional purposes. Zoom offers a free level of service. That service allows one to use Zoom for up to 40 minutes. When you participate in a meeting organized by someone with a higher level of Zoom service, you can remain in a meeting for the duration of it. The 40-minute time-limit does not apply in that case.

You can use Zoom on a desktop, on a device (smartphone or tablet), or just by calling in to a number.

This website provides information about how to set up and use Zoom.

Easiest I have found is to set up my laptop by installing the application there. Then when I want to join a meeting, I just click on the link for that meeting. This website explains how to use that desktop option.

Best Practices Knowledgebase

Meeting Practices (for everyone)

  • When participating in a meeting, mute yourself whenever you are not speaking. Microphones pick up televisions, nail filing, tapping, or sniffles. This sound is transmitted to the meeting and interrupts the sound of the person speaking.
  • Some people opt to turn off video as well as muting, and that is fine.

Organization Practices (for organizers)

  • This resource provides information about managing Zoom-bombing. If a more useful resource could be provided here, please advise.
  • For each online meeting it helps to have a chair of the meeting and a moderator, two separate roles. The moderator can manage participation while the chair leads the meeting. The moderator could also monitor the chat where meeting participants might note technological issues (for example, calling for everyone to participate voice-only to manage the amount of data trafficking during a meeting).
