Zoom Tips for Continuing Education (CE)
Join the Class Early
We recommend joining 15 minutes before the start of class, this will give you time to test your audio connection and camera. Appearing and remaining on camera for the duration of the class is mandatory to receive credit per the Virginia Real Estate Board. A staff member will be present to observe attendance for the instructor. Sign in ends 5 minutes after the start of class, after which time no one is permitted to enter the class.
Disconnected? Don’t panic
If you get disconnected for any reason while class is in session, stay calm, follow the same protocol as joining to get back into the class as soon as possible.
We ask that you keep your microphone muted unless your instructor or meeting host says otherwise.
If you have an in-class question, use the “raise hand” button and unmute your own mic to speak.
A little about video layouts:
The default video layout and only shows the active speaker. We recommend this layout while class is in session.
You can also select to view your video layout in Gallery View. When using Gallery View, you will be able to see all participants and will have an arrow to scroll through the remaining participants.
Side by Side View Option
When you are viewing a screenshare, you can view in speaker or gallery view at the top of your screen or in Side-by-Side Mode. Click the swap icon at the upper right corner of the Zoom window to switch the content for the video feed.
