Joining the Zoom Webinar or a Meeting

Step 1

Please sign in to the Zoom application by following the instructions as below:

Step 2

  • Click on the Zoom meeting link from your email invitation or calendar invite. (Note: If you don’t see a clickable version of the link, just copy and paste the meeting link/URL into a browser window.) Example link https://georgetown.zoom.us/j/96832234525

Useful Considerations

  • Do not publicly share the link/URL of your meeting
  • Allow for up to 5 minutes to join the meeting to check Zoom connectivity/microphone/camera etc.
  • If you experience issues joining a Zoom meeting, after following the joining instructions in step 2 above, it is advised to restart your computer and try again. (Tip: Restarting your computer once a week will help to clear random, unimportant temporary files that slow down the device.)
  • Ensure your Laptop/Device holds sufficient battery charge
