Any Room on SF Campus

Step Two

Open the Zoom application on the laptop. You will have sign-in choices, choose sign in with google. Sign into your CCA Gmail join your meeting or start a new meeting.


Step Three

IMPORTANT: have anyone else who is in the same room and in the same zoom meeting TURN OFF/MUTE the audio of their zoom or there will be horrible feedback.

Step Four

Plug your laptop into the room as you always would. In this case, we are assuming you have a DVI and an audio jack. Plug the mic and camera into your computer. If using the snowball mic make sure the switch on the back of the mic head is set to setting 3.

Step Five

In your meeting, click the settings menu.


Step Six

In the Audio Settings, change the Speaker to Headphones. That means if you have a mini jack plugged into the audio port on your computer, the audio will come out of the classroom speakers.

Also, change the Microphone to Blue Snowball.


Step Seven

In the Video Tab Change the Video to the “BCC950 Conference Camera” The view should change. That’s it!
