THURSDAY IS THE DAY! PEA Meeting Online
Join us online at 7:00 a.m., weekly on THURSDAYS, beginning April 2 (for computer set-up, audio testing, and general kibitzing), and then we’ll officially start the meeting at 7:30 a.m.
Tips for Being a Good Zoom Participant
- Download the Zoom app before joining the call…the day before~NOW! Go to the Zoom website where can install via the ZoomLauncher.zip file.
- Test your camera before you login! Be sure to check behind you ~ what will be on camera with you?
- Remember, you’re on camera the entire time, even if a slide presentation is being shared, so remember everyone can still see you and what’s going on in your room.
- Always mute yourself when you are not speaking!
- If your camera freezes, just turn off your video. You can still listen and participate.
- If your computer won’t handle a Zoom call well, then just join by phone! You can still enjoy the time with your PEA friends.
- If you phone in and use your computer for viewing only, be sure to mute your mic on your computer.
- Cool tip! To briefly unmute yourself to say something short and sweet, just hold down the space bar. It works like a walkie-talkie button, keeping your line open as long as you’re pressing it. Release the space bar, and you go back to being muted. If the space bar trick doesn’t work, go back into the audio settings and check the box for “Press and hold SPACE key to temporarily unmute.”
