To support the health and safety of our students and faculty, all Fall 2020 onsite classes will be held online in Zoom. Zoom is an online video conferencing tool that allows you to join your live class sessions virtually. To use Zoom, you will need a computer with internet connection, a webcam (built in or installed), a computer microphone (built in microphone, USB microphone or an inline microphone on headphones) and speakers or headphones.
To test your computer connection, audio and webcam in Zoom ahead of your first class meeting, click here: https://zoom.us/test
If you have never used Zoom before, you will be prompted to install the Zoom Desktop Client before launching the meeting (or click here to download: https://zoom.us/download). This is a free, one time installation that is required for using computer audio and sharing your screen.
*You do not need to sign up or pay for a Zoom account to participate in a Zoom meeting. After clicking on your Zoom class link, simply enter your first and last name when prompted. You will then be placed in a waiting room and your instructor will admit you*
To participate in your onsite virtual class, you must log in to Zoom using the class specific Zoom link your instructor provides, at the scheduled meeting time.
