There are three primary ways for Columbia instructors to hold remote classroom sessions:
- Using Zoom (links provided directly by your instructor or department via email or announcement in CourseWorks)
- CourseWorks: Zoom Class Sessions
- CourseWorks: Conferences
If your instructor has provided you with a Zoom link, simply click the link to begin the session. If your instructor is using Zoom Class Sessions or Conferences in CourseWorks, please follow the instructions below.
First-time Zoom Users
If you haven't used Zoom before, please join the session a few minutes early so you can complete the first-time setup activities.You can avoid these activities by pre-installing and testing Zoom using the Zoom test page. If you've already installed Zoom but are unsure if it is working, this site can verify your voice, video, and sound are all functioning properly.
