Using Zoom to Learn Remotely

Setting up & Logging in to your Zoom Account

What do students need to do to use Zoom?

Zoom is a video conferencing and recording tool that can be integrated with AIMS. NEOMED offers free Zoom accounts to all NEOMED faculty, staff and students. If your instructor is using Zoom, here’s what you need to do.

Test your setup beforehand

Try the Test Meeting to make sure your software and audio is set up.

Find the Zoom meeting link for my class

Students will still utilize the same Office 365 calendar they are accustom to. The only change in the process is that next to the room location you will see a link for a Zoom room. Double click the calendar event and click on the hyperlink within the location or the notes.

Join a Zoom session

Click the Zoom meeting link several minutes before your meeting, as you may be prompted to download Zoom to your PC, Mac, tablet or phone. Follow the instructions to join computer audio and mute yourself if that isn’t default. Unmute when you want to talk. In most cases, your instructor should be recording the session so you can watch it later, but if you can participate, you should try. Hold the space bar to unmute yourself and release to mute yourself again.

How can I get help?

but first check your internet connectivity. While you wait, call the phone number for your meeting, to hear its audio, but mute as needed. Most of your sessions should be recorded as well.
