HELPFUL ZOOM TIPS

Choose a quiet space where there is minimal background noise or distraction (TV, people, pets, etc.)
Turn off notifications and mute your smartphone  /  Position your camera at eye level, get settled in your chair, and have paper and pen nearby  /  Mute your microphone 

During the meeting:

Connect to the meeting before the start time – many times you are in a “waiting room”   /   Mute your microphone when you are not speaking
Limit distractions such as movements including eating, standing up, talking to others, etc.  /  When your microphone is not muted, avoid activities that create noise
