Some More Information about Zoom Videoconferencing
The following video gives a brief introduction on what zoom looks and feels like: https://youtu.be/BGH1y70zSkg
How do I use Zoom?
If you have a computer, laptop or other device (mobile telephone, tablet) that has a camera and speakers, you can join in a meeting with others. NB: it is best to be connected to the internet in some way, or you may put a significant dent in your mobile data plan!
First of all, get a free Zoom account. This will make it easier for you to join a meeting easily if someone sends you a link to it. You can do this free at https://zoom.us/signup.
You can join a meeting without signing up, simply click on the link sent to you.
Tip: Part of the sing up process involves giving an email address for an activation email. This works best if you are signing up from a device (phone, computer etc) that you are also able to receive this email from.
Once you have activated your account, you can sign in from any device using your activation email and password.
Have a look at the bottom of the sign up page, there are links in the Downloads menu for apps you can install. If you are on a PC or laptop, download the Meetings client. You will see also links to Android and iPhone/iPad apps (you can search for them in your app store, just put “Zoom” into the search box).
How do I join a meeting?
Click on the link sent to you for the meeting. We use the same links for all meetings as follows:
- Registrar organised meeting: https://zoom.us/j/6434880821
- Child Youth and Family Educator organised meeting: https://zoom.us/j/4137523302
- Remote CalledSouth organised meeting: https://zoom.us/j/2192940448
Anything to keep an eye on?
Make sure you look at what is on the Zoom screen – is your microphone working and your camera turned on? There are controls on the bottom left hand side of the screen where you can fix any problems. Zoom has some tutorials that you may find helpful.
Want to set up a meeting for yourself?
If you are signed up for Zoom you can organise a one-to-one meeting with any other person also signed up to Zoom – all for free.
If you want to organise a meeting through a Diocesan account, please contact the Diocesan Registrar who can help set this up for you.
Need any help?
