Quick guide to Zoom©

Our guide to ZOOM© for remote learning


Quick guide to Zoom©

Ignite Performance uses Zoom© to provide remote video services. Zoom© is a cloud-based meeting tool which combines video conferencing, online meetings, and mobile collaboration into one platform. It is a reliable, high-quality and easy to use tool that is easy to connect and collaborate.

What You Need To Get Started

A Zoom© account is NOT required if you are joining as a participant of an Ignite Performance Remote Learning session. We will send you a Calendar Invite. All you will need to do is to click on the link in the invite. We recommend that you test the link prior to the session beginning to ensure your Sound and Video are working. You will need the following:

  • An internet connection that is at least 2Mbps up/down.
  • An internet connected (via either direct cable, WiFi or mobile 4G/5G) computer, laptop, or web-enabled device such as a smartphone or tablet.
  • A built-in camera or external webcam on your computer, that is positioned to see you.
  • A built-in microphone will work or ideally,  a headset/microphone set connected to block out background noise.
  • As a minimum the latest Browser eg Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox etc.
  • For those of you that are already Zoom© users, then you can use the desktop App for Windows, Mac PCs or the smartphone/tablet App, that is available for free from the respective device app stores.

How to launch Zoom© and participate in your meeting

When you’re invited to participate in a Zoom© meeting arranged by Ignite Performance, you’ll receive a calendar invite with instructions similar to what you see in the adjacent image (click to enlarge). You can either click on the link provided, or go to the Zoom© web site at and click on “Join a Meeting” where you can enter the 9 or 10-digit Meeting ID number. Closing any applications you don't need for the meeting will improve the quality of your connection. Audio is integrated in the meeting.

Meeting Invite

While you’re waiting for the meeting to begin

You’ll be presented with the following screen if Ignite Performance hasn’t started the meeting at the time you join. We recommend that you check your audio settings while waiting for the meeting to start. If you're an individual meeting participant, we recommend wearing headphones to avoid audio feedback.

You can learn more about joining a Zoom meeting here in this short 3 minute video.

The Zoom© menu bar

The Zoom© menu bar appears at the bottom of the Zoom© window once the meeting begins. If you don’t see the menu bar, move your mouse slightly and the bar will appear. (The bar disappears after a few seconds when in full-screen mode.)

What if I’ve never used Zoom© before?

No problem. Your Ignite Performance facilitator will introduce you to the main features of Zoom© at the beginning of your session. You’ll be chatting and submitting responses to 'Polls' before you know it.
