Using Zoom

Our online meetings are held via Zoom. It is helpful for you to have a free account set up with Zoom so we can add you as a contact.

Your teacher will send out a Zoom invitation before the group scheduled meeting time. In most cases, this invitation can be used for all of your groups.

If you cannot log in to the group call via your computer, tablet, or smart phone, you can phone in to the call. There will be a phone number and access code in the invite you receive from the teacher.

No technical assistance available once the meeting has started. You can email before or after the meetings and we will try to help at those times.

Online meeting manners to help keep our focus during meetings

  • Log on 15 minutes early your first time, and a few minutes early for continuing meetings, so we are able to start on time.
  • Use a private room whenever possible. A headset with a built in microphone is optimal, but not required.
  • Turn off: phone ringers, notifications, alarms, noisy equipment. During the group, you may also need to turn off your video if your internet connection is slow.
  • Stabilize any your iPad before the meeting. Turn off the video when moving around.
  • Do not use the chat function, nor email, web surf or work online during your meetings. Taking notes is OK.
  • Mute your microphone when not speaking. Talking slowly and occasionally pausing is encouraged.
  • Rebooting your computer some time before the meeting, and closing out all browsers when on the call.
