The BHV Book Group will gather on Zoom the third Tuesday of each month from 2 – 3:15 p.m. to discuss a book previously selected by the group.
Please reach out to Book Group leader Diana Crane (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions about participating.
Get acquainted with Zoom.
The steps to participating are fairly straightforward and BHV is here to help if you have any trouble. First, you need the right kind of equipment. To get the full audio and video effect of Zoom, you need:
a computer (Mac or PC) with a connected camera, a smartphone, or a tablet. If you can take a selfie on your phone or tablet you have a camera. You probably have one if you have a laptop -- it’s the little pinhole above the screen. A PC or Mac may have one in the monitor or there may be a separate camera: if you can do Facetime or Skype with video, you are all set.
a microphone to talk into. Smartphones, tablets and laptops should already have them. A desktop PC, if it has one, is probably a standalone device. A Mac PC could have either an integrated or standalone mic. If you can talk to Siri or someone else that lives in your computer you are good to go.
If you are using a smartphone or a tablet, you need to go to your app store and install the Zoom Cloud Meeting. Once installed, open the app and sign up for a free account.
If you are using a PC, go to the webpage https://zoom.us/ and sign up for a free account. After you download and finish the installation of Zoom, you are ready to join your first meeting!
Because things can go wrong, if you have trouble or have any questions, please let the office know by email email@example.com, and someone will get in touch with you.
BHV looks forward to seeing you soon on Zoom!
