What happens when you click "join"?

You will be directed to the zoom meeting room of [K-OS]. We encourage you to use your real name as you join. It makes it easier for other participants to communicate with you. You probably want to tick the box join with computer audio, otherwise you won't be able to hear anything. Both your camera and your microphone will stay off as you join.

You will be able to hear and see the speaker, his/her computer screen and/or her/his blackboard.

You can use the chat to communicate with other participants. Note that you can choose to whom you send messages. The speaker will typically not read the chat. To show reaction you may use the non-verbal feed-back buttons at the bottom of the participants window.

If you want to ask a question, wait until, it seems appropriate, turn your microphone on and ask you questions. Don't forget to switch it off after thanking the speaker for her/his answer.

If this is your first time with zoom, we suggest you to connect to the meeting room 10 minutes before the seminar starts in order to get used to its functionalities.
