We are regularly updating these documents. If you are unsure if you have the latest version, please check the time stamp in the footer of your document. Download the latest version below if it's newer than the document you have.

When using ZOOM, make sure that you:

  • have the latest version of the ZOOM software, as well as any other software you'll be using with it (e.g. PowerPoint) installed.
  • wear a headset or earbuds with a built-in microphone, and make sure your audio is being captured from this microphone instead of your computer's built-in microphone. In almost all cases, this will dramatically improve upon how other remote participants hear your voice.
