This article will cover some of the basic functions and helpful tips for using Zoom while attending your live sessions throughout your Live Study Group. You will join your live sessions by clicking the Zoom link that appears on your study calendar.

  1. Download the Zoom app & make sure your Zoom is up to date.

    Once you have downloaded the Zoom app on your device, make sure you have the most updated version by navigating to your account settings in the top righthand corner of Zoom, then clicking "Check for Updates."

2. Ensure your Zoom name is the one that you registered for the course with.

If you need to rename yourself, you can do so once you've joined a meeting by clicking the three small dots in the top righthand of your camera view, and selecting "Rename."

3. Use the chat or Q&A.

If you have a question during a live session, the best practice is to put in the chat so that everyone has a chance to learn.

Make sure that your chat settings are set to "Everyone".
