New to Zoom? Looking for a refresher on how to join our online classes? Look no further!
This Quick Start Guide will help you step-by-step launch Zoom and join a virtual class.
Step 1. Find Your Class
Browse our online classes. You can add them to your personal calendar for a friendly reminder, or visit here.
Once you find the class you want to join, click the button “Join Class” to get started!
TIP! Join 5-10 minutes early to allow time to get the hang of Zoom!
Step 2. Open Zoom
If joining on a smart phone, you will have to install the Zoom application.
If joining on a computer you can join through your web browser or install the Zoom application. If you are installing, you will be prompted to launch the application.
Step 3. Sign In
Sign in to class. You will need to enter your name, email address, barcode # and home Y location.
Why? We take the safety and security of our members very seriously at the Y! To prevent unwanted or malicious attacks, we verify all participant information prior to entry.
Step 4. Connect Audio
Once in you’ll be asked to join audio by computer, so at the end of class you can join in the conversation, ask questions, or say ‘hi!’
Step 5. Start Video
You will be muted during class, but you can turn on your video. On the bottom of the screen there is a tool bar. On the bottom-right there’s a camera that you can click to start your video, so your instructor can see you.
Step 6. Select View & Enjoy!
Lastly, let’s choose your view. On the top-right corner, there’s a speaker view option and a gallery view option.
Speaker view will show you the instructor (or whoever is speaking) in full frame.
Gallery view will show you a collection of smaller boxes filled with other participants.
Once your view looks good… get ready to sweat & enjoy!
Tip! Our recommendation is to use speaker view during the class so you can view the instructor the best! Don’t worry. You can always switch to gallery view at the end to see everyone in the class.
