Zoom Etiquette – Attendee

Think of a Zoom Meeting as a face-to-face meeting and conduct yourself as you would if you were all present in the same room. In addition there are some additional useful tips below to observe to help ensure the meeting goes smoothly for all involved:

  • Join early – up to 5 minutes before the meeting start time
  • If you haven’t used Zoom before click the link to download Zoom prior to the day of the meeting and familiarise yourself with any features you may need to use on the day – mute/unmute microphone, stop/start video, screenshare etc.
  • Have your video on unless you are experiencing connection issues
  • Find a quiet space without interruptions / background noise
  • Have a plain background – avoid backlight from bright windows
  • Have good lighting on your face so you can be seen clearly
  • Adjust your camera to be at around eye level if possible – especially take note of the angle of your laptop screen if using the built-in camera.

Good lighting, good angle, plain background

Poor lighting, backlit by window, busy background
