  • For the first time, it will ask you to download the app. It is much easier if you have not already had ZOOM downloaded.
  • Sign in using your Bronco email and download the app:

  • Grab some earbuds that have a built-in mic and will cancel the noise that are around you.
  • Also, you may have to mute your laptop and use the headphones for preference. If you use your laptop audio, that is fine, but keep in mind you will need to be in a quiet area.
  • Test phone and camera.

Name Description
Unmute/Mute This is helpful as background noises can cause interference. So if you are not the one speaking, muting yourself will give the best quality.
Video This will allow your students to see you and you see them
Invite If you would like to invite additional people during the meeting you can, however everyone who needs access will have the ability to join with your link, which we will discuss in a moment.
Participants This will allow you to see who is in the class and helpful for when you would like to call on people.
Arrow in the middle of icons Multiple people can share at the same time. So if you have assigned a group project or perhaps have teaching assistants, this may come in handy.
Share Screen This is important for when you would like to share a PPT or details with your students. We will also be putting this into practice.
Chat Similar to Skype and Messenger, the chat area allows you to post questions and responses to all members of the meeting.  This is like skype messaging or messenger, so everyone can see the questions and responses.
Record You can record your sessions for your students who may not have been able to watch it live. You will want to practice recording and saving the sessions before your first zoom session. Once you click start record, it will continue to record the entire session. Click on stop, then once you leave the meeting your recording will be converted to an MP4 and accessible through your downloads on your computer.
Breakout rooms Are available for people to work in groups; however, we would recommend using this once you feel more comfortable with ZOOM. It is exciting to learn, but we want to take it one step at a time for our students.
Reactions This will allow you to ask basic understanding questions and the students can give you a thumbs up! This can also promote positivity in the classroom by giving a round of applause for one another.

  • On the home page, in zoom, on the top right-hand side of your screen, you will see a circle with a person icon. Click on that and click on my profile. Here you can upload a picture and set up your personal meeting ID.
  • A personal ID can be changed to make it easier to recall. You can set it up so that you don’t have to enter your ID and it be automatic.
  • The link that you see is your personal meeting link. You can use this to send to people for meetings, however we will show you an easier way to do so.
