Here are some Instructions for online ZOOM meetings:
You will receive an email inviting you to a ZOOM meeting the day before or the day of the scheduled meeting. Click on the link in your email. For those who will be using ZOOM regularly for consultation, please note will use the same link each time we meet (please be sure to keep the link for future meetings) It will bring you to “join meeting”
First-time users will need to download and run the program to join the meeting THEN once you are in meeting you may need to download/run the program to use sound. Please be sure to do both steps. First-time users should log in around 5 minutes early so they can do this step.
Once you do this you will be in the meeting. On the upper right hand corner set your view of participants to gallery then click on “chat” at the bottom of your zoom window. This will open a chat box on the right side of your screen. Along the bottom menu there will be a microphone symbol. Click on this symbol to mute and unmute yourself. It is best to mute yourself unless you are talking. This will minimize feedback.
Be sure to wear headphones when in ZOOM meetings to minimize any feedback
If you are planning to present a video/share your screen you will need to:
- Click the GREEN share screen ONCE then your screen will turn white (MAC users see below for necessary steps prior to this)
- YOU MUST CHECK THE BOX on bottom left that says “Share computer sound” after you check this box on your left
- Then go to the bottom right and click on SHARE SCREEN.
- If you miss the share computer sound check box the video sound playback will not work and we will need to do this step over.
- DON’T use google chrome as a browser because the sound often doesn’t work with this browser. It is recommended to use internet explorer or safari.
- Once you share your screen and open your video, make sure you don’t open your video to full screen. Instead drag the corners of your video to make it bigger.
- NEXT step is to “open your chat box”.
- To open your chat box, hover mouse at the top of your screen and a drop down menu will appear
- Click on More or the 3 dots and another drop down menu will open
- Click on chat. Your chat box will open and you will need to drag it around your screen to find a good spot for it.
MAC first time users: you will need to go into security and unlock your computer to allow ZOOM audio communication. You will only need to do once and CAN ONLY do it when you are ready to screen share. DO THIS STEP before you click on the green share button. Please go into system preferences, security/privacy, general tab and click the lock at bottom to make changes and add your password. This will open the lock, leave it open, minimize system preferences and go to STEP 1 above.
Be sure to USE a COMPUTER or a LAPTOP when presenting a case. DO NOT USE an iPad or google chromebook. If you are only calling in and not presenting you can join the meeting from your iPad or smaller device, but you can’t use a smaller device when presenting.
If you would like to record supervision, please ask so I can give you permission to record at the time of your presentation.
If any problems during our meeting time please text me at 609-915-9387
