In order to facilitate remote committee meetings and the weekly virtual coffee hour, OSLC has chosen Zoom, an online meeting application (app). This allows a “Host” to schedule a meeting and then for “attendees” to join your call.

Those who would like to participate in events conducted on Zoom, will need to download the Zoom app on their computer, smart phone, or tablet.

Zoom provides the ability to use your computer or mobile device’s camera, microphone and speaker to provide live video and audio of each person in the meeting. However, you have a few options:

  1. Use the your microphone and speakers on your computer (if you have them).
    Call in using your phone, if you don’t have a microphone or speakers  on your computer.
  2. If you have a camera, we can see each other (optional!) You can choose to turn the video off and still use your computer audio.
  3. Use ZOOM app on your mobile devices (download app). This means you can join from wherever you happen to be.
  4. You can join a meeting using a combination of phone and computer. You will see others and presentation on computer but use your phone for audio.
    CAUTION – PLEASE MUTE your mic/phone when not talking to keep background noise to a minimum. If it gets hard to hear, the host can mute all lines.
