Zoom: How Do You Use It?

What is Zoom? Zoom is a video-conferencing application that allows online meetings, chat, and collaborations. Many teachers are using Zoom as their classroom, which allows students to be more involved. Many judges in Texas are beginning to use Zoom as their virtual courtroom. Zoom is available on Windows, macOS, iOS, and Androids. Many people are using Zoom to communicate with each other and just allowing there to be collaboration during the stay-at-home or shelter-in-place order It’s an excellent way to continue to keep in contact the way you need to while social distancing.

Let’s cut to the chase, how do you use Zoom? First, make sure you sign up for an account or log on. If it’s work-related definitely recommend a login with your work email.

Next is to get logged in and start working. In order to understand Zoom a little better, it’s essential to play with it a bit and get familiar with the website.

There are multiple features included in Zoom. You can either host or join a meeting. Join a meeting by clicking, “Join a meeting”. You will then be prompted with a pop up that states to enter your “meeting ID” this should be provided by the host of the meeting. Next, you join, and congratulations you’re now attending a Zoom meeting. Another feature is to start your own meeting. To do this you will click the “Host a meeting,” this is where you will see various options about the video, audio, and screen sharing. Be extra careful because by sharing your screen it will allow the attendees to have access to your screen. Make sure that you do not have personal or private information on your screen anywhere. By doing this it will allow you to keep your personal data safe. It’s also essential to mark the meeting private if you do not want anyone other than the people you are inviting to be in attendance.

Overall, using Zoom is a great way to practice social distancing. When used correctly, it is beneficial.
