How to join a Zoom video conference

Here's how to join a Zoom video conference:

Computer instructions

    • Click on the conference URL (or enter it directly in your browser)
    • Follow the prompts to download and install the zoom.us app. (Beware that I have had problems with the app on Mac OS Catalina 10.15).
    • If you have trouble starting the zoom.us app, you can click the conference link again and then click "start from your browser"

    • Give permission to use the camera / microphone (if asked)
