Finding Your Zoom Meeting
1. First, open a browser, log into discovery.asbury.edu, and open your class.
3. On this new page, you will see all of your upcoming meetings. If you are taking more than one online class, those meetings may also be listed on this screen.
Please Note: Make sure your time zone settings on this page is correct so you can see the accurate meeting times.
3. Audio/Video - once open, Zoom will ask you which speaker and microphone you want to use in your session.
- Computer audio is recommended, and you can test your microphone and speakers before starting the session with the test button. You can call in on a phone if needed.
- Please note that you can check the "Always Use" option at the bottom of the window, so you are not prompted to select computer audio each time you use Zoom.
Options and Tools in a Zoom Meeting
Mute/Unmute - this mutes and unmutes your audio, if you click the arrow to the right, it gives you more advanced audio options.
Note: If you are going to share a video, be sure to check the two boxes at the bottom of the share screen ("Share Computer Sound" and "Optimize for full-screen video clip) so everyone can hear the audio.
