Zoom Meeting Passcode
For scheduled meetings, the meeting passcode will be in the invitation. For instant meetings, the passcode will be displayed in the Zoom Client or on the Zoom Rooms Controller. The passcode is also included in the meeting join URL.

Windows: CTRL Shift Delete > Select Advanced and make sure the Time Range is set to “All Time”.
Mac: Command Shift Delete > Select Advanced and make sure the Time Range is set to “All Time”.

Breakout rooms allow you to split your Zoom meeting into separate sessions. The meeting host can choose to split the participants of the meeting into these separate sessions automatically or manually, and can switch between sessions at any time.
• Make sure to enable breakout rooms first.
• You can also pre-assign participants to breakout rooms when you schedule the meeting instead of managing them during the meeting.
• Breakout room participants have full audio, video, and screen share capabilities.
• Take note of the limitations of breakout rooms.
Only the host can assign participants to breakout rooms.
If the meeting is being cloud recorded, it will only record the main room, regardless of what room the meeting host is in.

Some users have reported that they’re having audio issues with their Chromebook. Either the sound is completely silent or it’s cutting in and out intermittently. There are a variety of problems that can cause this for both sound coming from the speakers and sound coming from headphones.
There’s also a great YouTube video you can view HERE.
Suggestion #1: How large are the files intended to be downloaded.
If you’re uploading an audio file for download on the day of class, that file does take time to be fully uploaded before it can be downloaded.
Make sure you really insert and push the headphones in - until you hear the click.
Suggestion #4: The “close lid” solution
- Unplug your headphones.
- Close the lid of the Chromebook and wait ten seconds.
- Plug in the headphones. Open the lid. The Chromebook will re-scan for audio devices and should find your headphones.
OR, if that doesn’t work:
- Turn off your Chromebook.
- Plug in the headphones
- Turn on the Chromebook. The Chromebook will re-scan for audio devices on startup and should find your headphones.
Look to the lower right corner of your screen. There you will see a series of icons. Click on your account picture at the very right. A window will appear showing you information about your Chromebook. Make sure that the audio is at a high volume. If it’s muted, unmute it. And make sure that the output is set to the proper destination; headphones if you want to listen through headphones, speakers if you want to listen through speakers.
(Fridays from 9-4pm) -Your teachers will inform you when there is something to pickup at school
