For a YouTube tutorial created by our SAGE Intern, Niko, click HERE!

Join by computer

  • Close any program on your computer that uses your camera, for instance, Skype.
  • Have a headset available if possible to minimize feedback – your cellphone earbuds will work well.
  • Click the Zoom link that’s been sent to you in an email or in the Facebook event, and Zoom should automatically and quickly download to your computer.
  • In Downloads on your computer, click Zoom_launcher.exe. Zoom should direct you to this with a large orange flag.
  • Once Zoom has launched, a screen should pop up asking for your name. This will identify you during the meeting.
  • You should now be part of the meeting. Click the green button that says “Join Audio By Computer”.

Join by tablet or smartphone

  • If you choose to use your tablet or smartphone, be sure to download the Zoom app ahead of time.
  • Once you have downloaded the Zoom app, follow the “Join by computer” instructions above.

Join by telephone

  • First, dial the phone number provided in the Zoom email or Facbook event
  • When prompted, dial the meeting ID number that is also provided.  
  • Your phone will be automatically muted once the meeting starts. If you want to speak, press *6 to unmute.

We want to start on time – please allow extra time to get successfully connected. Someone will be on hand to help you if needed. This is especially important if this is your first time using Zoom.
