Zoom etiquette for attendees
In order to have a better experience on Zoom we recommend you follow these best practices:
1. If you are using Zoom for the first time, please refer to How to set-up Zoom.
2. Join a few minutes early to take the time to test your video and sound connection. For more information, visit: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115002262083-Joining-a-test-meeting.
3. Position your camera properly focused at eyes level; have a plain background and avoid backlight.
4. Have your microphone on mute if you are not talking or find a quiet space without background noise: when your microphone is not muted avoid activities that could create additional noise.
5. Limit your distraction muting your phone and smartphone and turning off notifications and emails.
6. Be aware that you are on camera: avoid moving around too much and eating during the class.
7. Be aware that only one voice at a time can be heard on Zoom: let other people finish speaking and raise your hand when you want to talk.
