How to Join a CEN Community Conversation

(Zoom Videoconference) 


Join by computer

Close any program on your computer that uses your camera, for instance, Skype

Have a headset available if possible to minimize feedback - your cellphone earbuds will work well

Click  Zoom should automatically and quickly download to your computer.

In Downloads on your computer, click Zoom_launcher.exe. Zoom should direct you to this with a large orange flag. 

Once Zoom has launched, a screen should pop up asking for your name. This will identify you during the meeting.

You should now be part of the meeting. Click the green button that says "Join Audio By Computer"

Join by phone

Dial (408) 638-0968     Meeting ID is: 382 649 4497     

Your phone will be muted once the meeting starts. If you want to speak, press *6 to unmute


We want to start on time - please allow extra time to get online.

Zoom video conferencing is very easy to access by computer, tablet, smartphone or regular telephone. However, glitches can occur. In consideration of the whole group, please arrive 15 minutes early in order to get successfully connected. Someone will be on hand to help you if needed. Once you are connected via Zoom you are welcome mute your microphone and turn off your video until just before the meeting starts - or you may enjoy chatting with others in the meeting while you wait.
