One tool that many classes will utilize is Zoom, a free software program that allows for synchronous video meetings, or what we’re calling “virtual” delivery of class. You can use Zoom on a computer, tablet, or your phone. If you've never used it, you can join an SPSCC Student Test session before the start of Spring Quarter.
To join a session:
Prepare to join the Zoom Meeting.
If you are using a tablet or phone, download the Zoom app. You do not need to create an account to join Zoom, but you will be asked to type in your name when you join a meeting. Try to use a name that matches your display name in Canvas to make it easier for your instructor to know who is joining the video session.
If you are using a computer, you need to have a webcam and microphone to be able to join the video meeting. You can do a test by going to this website: https://zoom.us/test and joining a 'test' meeting. You will be the only one in the meeting, but it will allow you to see if you can set-up your video and audio.
Pick an SPSCC Student Test session to join. They last about 30 minutes and are held at different days and times. See the list of days/times below. You can also find this list in your Learning at SPSCC Canvas course that all students are enrolled in each quarter.
When it's time, click on the SPSCC Student Test session meeting invite: https://spscc.zoom.us/j/102843508, or click 'Join Meeting’ from the app and enter the meeting ID 102 843 508.
If you try all of this, and it doesn't work, please reach out to the Center for Teaching and Online Learning and we will do some troubleshooting with you. Email: email@example.com; phone: 360-596-5260 (leave a message and we'll call you back!).
Can't wait to see you in Zoom!
