ZOOM Meetings (based on notes kindly provided by Gabriel Chanan)

  1. It works best if you download the free version of zoom beforehand – just google ‘zoom’ and follow instructions.
  2. It works best on a laptop or tablet because you can see the pictures better and it is less tiring, but you can get it on a smartphone.
  3. You will receive the link before the start time. You simply click on it and then wait to be ‘admitted’.
  4. The first ten minutes will be for checking how it works and for your announcements.
  5. Total time will be 90 minutes, with a ten-minute break at half time.
  6. There will be at least two points where you can ask questions and discuss.
  7. You can leave at any point (but we hope you will not want to!).
