ZOOM Instructions

Our online programs use the Zoom software program. If you have not already used Zoom, you can either create a free account ( or not, but you will need to complete an approximately minute long software download for your computer, phone or tablet. We recommend having this done well before the class start so that you can focus on the fun!

  1.  ‘Join Audio Conference by Computer’ –(Green button)
  2. Once in the event, you can choose to turn on your video (recommended!) and audio (recommended!) in order to participate. As moderators, we will selectively mute your audio in order to maintain focus on the presenter.
  3. There is a button in the top right to toggle between ‘Speaker View’, which gives the focus to the presenter and ‘Gallery View’, which shows the gallery of the audience (including you!)
