  2. Open meeting link
  3. The first time you access a Zoom meeting you will be prompted to download and install Zoom.
  4. When your tutor opens the room you will join automatically (if your tutor hasn't arrived you may be put in a waiting room).
  5. Enter your name and click join.
  6. An audio options dialogue box will display. It is a good idea to Test your Speaker and Microphone before joining.
