Zoom Frequently Asked Questions
Does Zoom cost money?
No. Using Zoom as a participant is free. Wuffing Education has already paid for the organiser’s ‘Pro plan’ which covers your extended use on the day.
How can I test the Zoom connection?
Click on the button below to set up a test Zoom meeting to confirm that you have set up your Zoom correctly. You can also use it to test your microphone and camera. We recommend that you do this well in advance of the meeting and also an hour or so before the meeting to make sure everything will run smoothly on the day.
Where can I find out more about the advanced features of Zoom?
Zoom has loads of information including helpful videos at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101697-Getting-Started. In general the advanced information is not relevant to our straightforward seminars.
What is the etiquette for interacting on Zoom?
The basics of how to ask questions and the structure of the day will be explained at the start of each session. Normally the chairman will mute and un-mute all microphones as necessary. Usually questions will be managed via the chat button on Zoom.
Do I need to have a camera and microphone?
No. These are optional. Obviously if you want to speak or be seen then they are essential. If you don’t have a camera/microphone or they are turned off the control option for them will have diagonal line through them.
Why is the Zoom Meeting not listed in my upcoming Zoom Meetings?
This is because the event uses Eventbrite’s scheduling system and not Zoom’s. This is because Eventbrite manages the bookings and payments, Zoom just provides the video link on the day.
