Zoom Tips and Best Practices
Download Zoom from here.
To join a Remote group, click the corresponding Zoom link in the table above.
Always keep your mic Muted unless you want to speak.
At times you may be Muted by the teacher and unable to unmute yourself. Please use the Raise hand feature in Zoom or type a question via Chat if you wish to be identified by the teacher to speak.
Please note that some meetings are recorded and will be posted online. As such, your image and name may be viewable in the published recording. You may wish to disable your video and/or use an anonymous ID.

If having trouble with connection stability..

  1. Try turning off your video and doing audio only
  2. If that doesnt help, use 'phone audio' from the Switch to Phone Audio feature accessible from the Mute button

Shortcuts if using  phone audio: *6 for toggling mute and and *9 for raising hand

Please continue to offer dana. Dana to teachers and SIMS can be made here. Please try to clearly designate the portion for teachers and SIMS and the event it relates to.
