Lifelong Learning will use the Zoom platform for online events. We are doing our best to make it easy and safe for everyone! Zoom works on your computer, tablet, or smart phone.

Step 1: Click on the link Lifelong Learning sends to you and a new web browser window will open. Lifelong Learning class links will look like this:

Step 2: Click “Open Zoom Meetings” if you have used Zoom before. If you have never used Zoom before, click “download & run Zoom” This will install and launch the Zoom Meeting app.

Step 3: Choose an audio option.
If your computer has a speaker and a microphone, choose “Join with Computer Audio.” (If your computer has a video camera, it will almost certainly have these things.) If it doesn’t, then choose “Phone Call,” and follow the instructions on how to call into the meeting while also staying on video.

If you have any questions please call the Lourdes University Help Desk at 419-824-3807. The Help Desk provides free professional help.

Links for classes will be sent via email. Links for monthly lectures will be posted on our website a few days beforehand and also sent via email.

Zoom Feature 1: Mute

Click on this icon to turn off your microphone. This is useful if you are eating something crunchy or are in a noisy space because it helps eliminate background noise on a call. Just click it again to unmute yourself when you want to speak.

Zoom Feature 2: Stop Video

This works the same way as the mute button, but for your video camera. If you need to leave the meeting for a minute, or do something private, click this button to hide your image from everyone else.

Zoom Feature 3: End Meeting

This is your hang-up button—it ends your participation in the meeting. If you end the meeting accidentally, you can rejoin by clicking on the link again.
