It's time to be online!

Written by

It's all over the news... the virus is changing the way people live and how they go to work.

Restaurants are shutting their doors and changing to delivery or pick-up only service.
Events, meetings, church and group gatherings are being cancelled or postponed.

But something amazing is happening at the same time...
People are coming together and supporting one another. I’m hearing stories of strangers helping other strangers to shop for groceries and other needs when they are too scared to go in public or to the store. We’re looking to help each other and find alternative solutions. And in-person meetings and gatherings are moving online!

Don’t let this slow you down... Let’s look for other options! And let’s use all our online resources to help us stay connected now more than ever!

One of the easiest things you can do is sign up for a free Zoom account.

This incredible online platform allows you to meet “face to face” via a video chat and/or share your screens for presentations or collaborative work. You can meet just one to one, or gather a whole room together for a meeting, or have one presenter and many attendees / viewers.

If you want to host your own meetings, Sign up for your own Free account here:

If you just want to attend someone else’s meeting, you can Join a Meeting Here:
https://zoom.us/join ...using a Meeting ID that they will give you.

Join a Meeting Here

Or they may send you a direct link to use to connect to their pre-scheduled meeting.

Either way, when you connect to the meeting, the website will download a little piece of software that allows you to connect together.

You will have to tell your computer to “Allow” “Accept” “Approve” or whatever else it asks you, as you give it permission to install the software and access your speakers, microphone, camera, etc.

Note – It will prompt you separately if you want to connect the Audio through your device/computer and in most cases - Yes, you DO want that. (so you can hear.)

That’s the minimum you need to do to get set up and connected.

From there, there are all kinds of settings you can configure. And it’s a up to a combination of those settings to determine whether you enter a meeting with your microphone and video camera enabled or disabled.

Look for the icons telling you if you’re muted or not (Audio) or visible or not (Video/Camera)...
