Zoom Etiquette

  • When a program begins, be sure to mute your audio until you are called or moved to speak.
  • When you are speaking, be mindful of background noise.
  • Leave your Zoom video on if possible – everyone wants to see your face! 🙂
  • But, if you do have to do something requiring you to step away from your computer or move around in the background, please turn off your video.
