Joining an online Zoom meeting

Zoom is an internet conferencing system used by OSU Extension Service for virtual classes and meetings.

Upon registering for a class or requesting a meeting, you will get an email invitation with a Zoom link to attend the class or meeting. Click on the link to join the meeting and, if you don’t already have it, you will be prompted to download Zoom to your device. You do not have to sign-up for a Zoom "account" to join the meeting.

You will be in a waiting room until the host admits you, so use this time to test your speakers and camera (not required). The host will do the rest. If you are not comfortable with the process, ask the facilitator for a practice meeting prior to the class. You may be asked to sign a consent form to participate and be included in any session being recorded for future use.
