Using your laptop with Zoom and the classroom technology

For HyFlex/mixed-delivery, instead of using your typical method for connecting your laptop to the classroom technology, you will need to connect your laptop to Zoom as a guest participant.

Step 1: On the classroom PC: Start your Zoom meeting.


Step 2: On the classroom PC: Make sure all of your settings are correct to use the classroom technology with Zoom (See Using Zoom for HyFlex/Mixed-Delivery in this Classroom).


Step 3: Email yourself a copy of the meeting link that you can access from your laptop. (You can do this step prior to class.)


Step 4: On your laptop: make sure you are logged out of the Zoom application. This will ensure you can join as a guest.


Step 5: On your laptop: click on the meeting link to join the meeting with your laptop. The Waiting Room will come up.


Step 6: On the classroom PC: allow the laptop into the Meeting and make Co-Host.


Step 7: On your laptop: Make sure you immediately mute the mic and speakers in Zoom.


Step 8: On your laptop: When ready share your laptop screen through Zoom. Both the local and remote students will be able to view your screen.
