- Set up your free UNC Zoom account by visiting unc.zoom.us and logging in with your Onyen and password.
- One of the easiest ways to improve your Zoom experience is to use headphones. Your sound quality will improve, and others will be able to hear you better when you participate in discussions.
- Another easy way to improve the quality of your Zoom experience is to mute your sound when you’re not speaking. (PRO TIP: Mute your audio from the start and just hold down the space bar when you want to speak!)
