  • Test your video and audio settings. Join the Zoom meeting at least 15 minutes before the start to test. See Zoom video and audio instructions for further details.
  • Know how to share content on your PC. Make sure your content is opened before joining the meeting and review Zoom instruction for sharing your screen.

  • When logging into Zoom, make sure to log in with your own name (or rename yourself) so that the host will be able to identify you.
