Tips for a Virtual Meeting

 – By

Zoom Link

  •  Mute your microphone – Alt A – unmute hold down the space key
    To help keep background noise to a minimum, make sure you mute your microphone when you are not speaking.
  • To chat select Alt H
  • To stop or start video Alt V
  • Be mindful of background noise:
    When your microphone is not muted, avoid activities that could create additional noise, such as shuffling papers.
  • Position your camera properly:
    If you choose to use a web camera, be sure it is in a stable position and focused at eye level, if possible. Doing so helps create a more direct sense of engagement with other participants.
  • Limit distractions:
    You can make it easier to focus on the meeting by turning off notifications, closing or minimizing running apps, and muting your smartphone. 
  • Avoid multi-tasking:
    You'll retain the discussion better if you refrain from replying to emails or text messages during the meeting and wait to work on that PowerPoint presentation until after the meeting ends.
  • Prepare materials in advance:
  • If you will be sharing content during the meeting, make sure you have the files and/or links ready to go before the meeting begins.
