  • If you are using a smartphone, or any iOS platform (like an iPad), you will need to download the Zoom app. Here are some special tips for iOS users and Zoom.  
  • You may wish to test your audio and video by opening up Zoom, click on Settings and click on the Audio and Video tabs to ensure your system is working properly.
  • During the global Zoom Conference with Cynthia Bourgeault, we will be using the webinar feature of Zoom, which means that you will see and hear the speakers, but not each other.  You will be able to submit questions to Cynthia via the chat feature.
