It’s important to us that you are supported with using the technology we have in place to connect you with your Rich Litvin Intensive experience. Following are 6 tips for using Zoom. We have also included a list of links to resources and to articles to help you troubleshoot common problems.
Helpful tips for using Zoom
1. Connecting on a computer or mobile device: For the best viewing experience we recommend connecting on a desktop or laptop computer. If you need to connect on a mobile device you could also use a tablet or mobile phone.
2. Download the Zoom App: We recommend downloading the Zoom app before the intensive begins. You will need to do this if you have never used Zoom on the device you are going to use to connect to the Zoom Meetings. If you have never used Zoom and try to join the meeting the day we begin, you will be prompted to download the app which could cause a slight delay in getting connected.
- Click here to go to the Zoom Download Center
- Choose “Zoom Client for Meetings” if you are downloading for a desktop or laptop
- Choose “Zoom Mobile Apps” if you are downloading for a mobile device
3. Internet Connection: Make sure you are in a place with a strong internet connection during the intensive.
4. Joining the Meeting: You can join a meeting by clicking on the meeting link, by going to join.zoom.us and entering the meeting ID, or by opening the Zoom App on your mobile device and entering the meeting ID. Here is more information about joining a Zoom Meeting.
5. Audio: For best audio quality we recommend using a headset. This will not only enable you to hear the presentation clearly but it will also allow Rich and the other attendees to hear you clearly when you speak.
- You can join audio by computer
- Or, you can join audio by phone. Here are more instructions for joining by phone.
- Here is more information about testing your device audio
6. Video: We recommend joining with your device video so we can see you! To ensure your face is well lit make sure your main source of light is in front of you, not behind you. While watching we recommend watching in “Speaker View” when there are several participants in the meeting and only using “Gallery View” when there are fewer than 10-15 participants in the meeting. Here are some helpful links about using your video.
