Joining Online Meeting is Easy with Zoom!

Before the Meeting…

We are using Zoom app for our online meetings.

…What is Zoom?

It’s an app that helps meet you online! You can use it on many devices.

Zoom is a communication software that combines video conferencing, online meetings, and mobile collaboration. 

…How Do I Join the Meeting?

There are two ways of access with MAC or Windows:

  1. Directly from your web browser: 
  • Click our meeting link: https://zoom.us/j/591440460
  • Your browser will prompt you to open Zoom if you already have Zoom’s web extension on your PC.
Microsoft Edge
(Different browsers may have different interfaces and controls)

      2. From Zoom app (Download the PC-based client and all the other versions here):

          Click the blue button that says Join a Meeting.


A new window appears asking you to put in the meeting room number (591440460) and your name. When you join us the second time, just click the downward arrow to pull down the drop box and select the right number. You may tick or tick off the last option: “Turn off my video”. However, don’t tick the other two options if you want to visit us again and hear what we are saying. 😉


That’s it, there you are. Welcome!

Have fun with early birds!

The Meeting Host will be there about  20 minutes before the meeting and guides you through if you have any problems. If you would like to explore, please feel free to watch a collection of Zoom Video Tutorials we sorted out for you.
