  3. Find the session you want to attend in the schedule tables.
  4. Click the link (or enter the session ID number displayed in the schedule) to join the meeting. 

Once you join the session:

  • By default, your microphone will be initially muted and the camera will be off. You may activate them at the bottom of your Zoom screen.

  • If you want to ask a question, click the "Raise your hand" button before you speak and:
    • If possible, submit the question (or the Problem number in the textbook) via the Chat. 
    • If you have a more personalized question, show the printed (or clearly written) problem through the camera or with a shared screen to the tutors.
  • When you are not speaking, please be kind to the participants and mute your microphone to avoid excessive noise during the session. 
  • You can leave the session at any point by clicking the button labeled  'Leave the Meeting'.
