Do not expect Zoom just to work! If you plan on taking a class or just using it, test it first. I started using computers when there was no keyboard, just punch cards, so I have a little experience! I have used to computer to connect to clients around the world with little problems. This week it all caught up to me when I was using Zoom! I joined the Board Zoom meeting using my desktop and discovered the webcam did not work. I had moved from Windows 7 to windows 10 some years ago and the webcam only worked on Windows 7. I then realized that there was no microphone attached, so I could only listen and watch the meeting. Maybe that was the reason it was a quick meeting! I tried my laptop and by the end of the meeting I got it to work. I am now getting ready for my wife Sandy to do a Zoom Art lesson, so I have been checking which of my 3 desktops and 4 laptops is best for her. The answer is, I will be purchasing some new hardware! The laptops that I do have with built in webcams seem to have problems with the speakers or the microphone.
What I thought was going to be a breeze, was anything but! Be smarter than your webmaster and check to see you can Zoom with your computer now! Then, Zoom a friend and do some art work together!
