How to start a Zoom Meeting

Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video. Zoom users can choose to record sessions, collaborate on projects, and share or annotate on one another's screens, all with one easy-to-use platform. Zoom offers quality video, audio, and a wireless screen-sharing performance across Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Blackberry, Zoom Rooms, and H.323/SIP room systems. Every student at BYUI will automatically recieve a Zoom account.

3. Click "Open Zoom Meetings"

4. Be sure to join with computer audio

5. If you need to leave the meeting, you need to take caution because there are two options. You can either let the meeting continue and just press "Leave Meeting" or you can end the meeting for everyone by pressing "End Meeting For All."
