What is in each Breakout Room:

Or click Participants and hover over (lap/desktops) or touch (phones/tablets) your name and select Rename
Muting, Original Sound, and Tech help
When playing music on Zoom only one person is unmuted at a time; everyone else mutes their mic and follows the leader. Simultaneous jamming isn’t possible. If you expect to lead a song or a tune especially with an instrument, you must Turn On Original Sound. How to do this is explained in the guides and videos listed above. For a complete document on best sound settings, visit this guide: https://davidperasso.net/ZoomSoundSettingsLatest.pdf
If you need tech help, go to the Lodge and ask for help. The Tech help room is were you can work out tech issues.
Workshops will generally have a Co-host who assists the workshop leader and handles logistics such as singing order and muting. The cohost status is given by the host in the main lobby.
- Be prepared to log out and log back in. Even reboot
- ask in chat if you can.
- Go to main room and talk to the host if needed, help will be sought A tech room is set up to help without disrupting otehrs
- Look up Zoom help (support) resources
Co Hosts: If for any reason the meeting ends or the Breakout Rooms are suddenly closed, we’ll fix it immediately. Wait a minute and rejoin. NEVER click on the red CLOSE ALL ROOMS in the breakout room window. To do so shuts the camp down and it must then be rebuilt.
