Zoom To-Do’s Before November 8

  • Consider plugging into your modem via an Ethernet cable/DSL versus using WiFi.
  • Use a laptop or desktop computer, if possible. They provide a better Zoom experience and generally work better with Zoom than mobile devices.
  • Download the latest version of Zoom Client for Meetings. Zoom does updates frequently, and not updating in advance means you will be prompted to update on login.
  • Test your audio and video via Zoom. It sets up a test meeting just for you to see and hear yourself.
  • Need help? Contact us before 11/08 with “Zoom” as the subject and we can arrange a test session.

Tech To-Do’s on November 9-10

  • Exit all applications including web browsers and turn your computer off and on again (i.e. reboot).
  • Limit the number of browsers you have open at once.
  • Open the Program Page with the password from Eventbrite emails and click the session link you wish to join.  Session links are in the far right column of the Program table titled Location.

  • For networking, ensure your name and organization are displayed on your Zoom screen.
  • Consider adding your gender pronouns to your screen name.
  • You can turn your video on or off during the event.
  • Virtual backgrounds may slow your access. If you choose to use one, it cannot be animated.
