Get started with Zoom
When using ZOOM, make sure that you:
Have the latest version of the ZOOM app, as well as any other software you'll be using with it (e.g. PowerPoint) installed.
Find out more about the latest Zoom updates relevant to remote learning (coming soon).
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. The UCSF Library has some audio and video equipment available for check-out.
Consider adding your pronouns to your name because in our inclusive UCSF community, Pronouns Matter.
