Zoom Tips and Best Practices
Download Zoom from here
To join a Remote group, copy the Zoom link from the table above into your browser and follow the instructions.
Always keep your mic Muted unless you want to speak
Use the 'Raise your hand' feature or type a question via Chat if 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 if you wish to be identified by the teacher to speak.
Please note the meetings are recorded and will be posted on line and as such your image and name may be viewable in the recording on the internet. 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.
