Joining a Zoom meeting is quick and easy!

Before each workshop, you will receive an email invitation to join a Zoom meeting. On the morning of the workshop, open your email invitation and click the ‘join Zoom meeting’ link. You will then be prompted to either ‘download & run Zoom’ or ‘launch from your browser’. If the host has not yet started the meeting, a message will appear and you will be ‘let in’ when the host starts the meeting. If the host has already started the meeting you will automatically join the group. You are not required to have/turn on your own video and audio, unless you wish to do so.

The Atkinson is unable to offer technical support to participants.
