Professor Rosenberg uses the Zoom meeting platform for all courses regardless of the web conferencing platform that your institution has adopted. Getting to your first class meeting is a snap! Just follow the directions below, and we’ll see you on the first day!
Pathway To Your First Class
- Before your first class meeting, download Zoom, install it to your computer, and set it up.
- Now that you have Zoom up and running on your computer, you need the Zoom meeting link for your course. This is found in an invitation we sent to your email address on-file with your university (this is almost always your university email address). If you don’t have the email, you can also access the meeting link from your course’s web page. Just log into either Canvas or Blackboard, whichever your university uses.
You are strongly discouraged from using the Zoom browser extension or the mobile versions of the Zoom application in place of the full, desktop version because they may lack certain functionality and compatibility that you may need. So, the rule-of-thumb: use them only if you must, but be prepared to find a different solution if it becomes necessary.
You will receive a Zoom invitation to your first class meeting via email at least three days prior to the meeting date.
- This invitation will be sent to your university email.
- In case you don’t receive it, it is also available on the course’s homepage set up on your university’s LMS system – Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, etc..
Invitations are sent out reasonably close to the date of the first class meeting in order to insure that those who register later will still receive the invite.
