Hints for Joining 

A password is embedded in each Zoom Link so that joining in is automatic (but included for backup and “phone-in” callers). 

Each session has it’s own Zoom Link so you must use the appropriate link for the time and session you want to join.

  • Once you click a Zoom Link (above or below), it will normally open your web browser and then you will be asked to install a Zoom App if you don’t already have it. It is safe to do so, but you may also be presented an optional link to join us through a web browser instead.
  • We will open the entrance to each session about 5 – 10 minutes before beginning.  Before that time you may get a message saying that the Host hasn’t started the “Meeting” yet. If you want to leave and come back, or loose connection, it is no problem – just use the same link to rejoin.
  • You will start with your microphone feed “Muted” (turned off) as these are one-to-many presentations (and you will only hear our presenter). We will turn on mics for an open discussion or to connect with individual children at the end of a presentation if we have time.
  • You should start with the “Speaker View” by default which will show our presenter large on your screen and other participants in smaller scrolling screens. (You can usually toggle between them by clicking at the top right of your screen.)
  • For privacy you can optionally turn off your Camera and still participate, however all participants can initially see each other.
  • You can change your name shown by clicking on it.
  • You may need to temporarily adjust your speaker volume. 

Most importantly, join us and have FUN!
