Zoom Meeting Participant Information
It is important to get set up on Zoom and make sure all is working correctly before the Wiconi Virtual Family Camp starts.
Here’s a Zoom website with helpful information on joining a Zoom meeting, but you can also skip this and go right to the next step below:
Install & Test Zoom
If you click on https://zoom.us/test you will be prompted to download and install the Zoom app if you haven’t already.
In the Zoom Test, you can check your video and audio.
At the bottom left of the Zoom screen, there are two buttons, Mute and Stop Video. To see these on an iPhone, tap the screen. If you click on the little up carrot (^) next to Mute, then click on Audio Settings, you can test your Speaker with the Test Speaker button. You can also test your Microphone with the Test Mic button. This records you speaking for a few seconds, then plays it back for you.
A couple of other features you should know about:
If you move your mouse to the upper right of the screen, you’ll see “Enter Full Screen.” Click on that to go to Full Screen mode. To exit Full Screen, repeat and “Exit Full Screen” shows up, or simply hit Esc.
Also, when there are several people on the Zoom session, in the upper right you can select Gallery View to see everyone in a small window or Speaker View to always see the person who is talking enlarged.
During the actual Wiconi Virtual Family Camp we’ll be in Speaker View in the main meeting and you can choose Gallery View in your smaller Talking Circle.
After you’re all set up with Zoom, make sure that you’ll be able to find your confirmation email (Subject: “Wiconi Virtual Family Camp Confirmation”) when the time comes, so you’ll be able to join the meeting.
If you have any problems getting set up ahead of time, please call Pete Gerhard (near Seattle) at (206) 384-6207. I won’t be able to help you once the meeting is about to start, so work on this early.
