  • Private Chat is disabled
  • Student cameras will be turned off when students join,  with the option to turn on
  • Teachers can mute and turn off student camera
 
This video demonstrates how to join a Zoom Meeting. Student will not have the join with video option on entry but can turn on cameras once the meeting is started by the teacher.
 
How to join a Class/Meeting
Join via meeting URL provided by the teacher
Open the email, newsletter, calendar invite, or other communication that contains a link to the prescheduled meeting and click the URL to join the Zoom Meeting.
 
Best Practices while in a Class/Meeting
  • Try to join the call at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled call.
• Sign in to the Zoom desktop client and stay signed in.
• Check your internet speed. If you're on free wifi you may need to keep your camera off to improve quality.
• Turn your camera on and have you camera at eye level.
• Stay muted unless you're talking to reduce background noise.
• Make sure you sit in a well lit and quiet place.
• Be mindful of what's going on behind you. Think about having solid wall behind you or turning on the
virtual background.
