Zoom Video Tips

The typical cause of video issues is not having connected to Zoom Video when you joined the meeting. After you've clicked on the link to join the Zoom session, you may be asked to preview your video option before officially joining the meeting. You can select whether or not to have your video on so others can see you. This should not affect your ability to see the teacher or course host. 

If you do not have your video on upon entering the meetings you can click on the camera at the bottom left of the Zoom window to turn your video on or off.
