Zoom Etiquette

  • Join from a quiet place free of background noise and visual distraction.
  • Mute yourself when you aren’t speaking. You can mute and un-mute yourself using the microphone icon at the bottom left of the Zoom window. For larger meetings participants will be automatically muted when they first join. You can also temporarily un-mute yourself by holding down your spacebar. If dialing in from a phone, please mute yourself using the icons on your phone’s screen, or any physical mute buttons.
  • Join with only one device to prevent audio feedback, unless absolutely necessary. If your computer does not have a microphone and you need to dial in with your phone to speak, please mute your computer’s speakers.
  • Pause your camera feed when necessary. If you need to step away from your computer, are working on other tasks and moving around while listening, are eating leftovers, or just feel like stepping out of the limelight for a bit, press the camera icon at the bottom left of the Zoom window to turn off your camera. Press it again to turn it back on.
  • Join the meeting a few minutes early. It will give all of us time to sort out any technical issues.
  • Speak slowly, clearly, and avoid crosstalk that makes it hard for others to hear.
  • Turn your phone or tablet sideways (“landscape” orientation) so your full image is visible to other attendees.
