Zoom Meeting Best Practices


  • Launch the Zoom application.
  • If you have a meeting invite in an email or calendar event, then click the join hyperlink. You may be prompted to open Zoom from your browser.

For Audio Only Meetings



  • Select the Join With Computer Audio
  • If you use the assigned Meeting ID, checkmark the “Turn off my Video” option.



Meeting etiquette:

  • Once you are observed, mute your microphone unless you are speaking. Please remember to mute in the application and not at the headset. Some headsets have a mute on the cord, but these do not fully mute audio on some headsets, so please do not use it.
  • Be aware that you are always on camera; anything you would not do in public would apply here.
  • Unless you are presenting, please do not open additional applications such as email, Word, or PowerPoint. Surfing the internet while participating in a call will degrade your experience, as well as the experience of others.

To end your



  • Click the Leave Meeting button.
  • If you are the Host, it will show an End Meeting button instead, giving you the recommended option to End the Meeting for All.
