Zoom Setup

UNM Continuing Education is monitoring our online classes closely and continuously working to follow best practices regarding security and privacy. 


  • When you log into the meeting you will be able to see and hear the instructor. You can ask questions through the chat feature. If you have a camera and a microphone (different from computer speaker) you will have full features and will be able to hear and see the instructor.

You can access the meeting via your computer, smartphone, or phone line. 

We recommend downloading the Zoom Launcher (for PC) [https://zoom.us/download#client4meeting] or the Zoom app (For iOS or Android) (Not essential, but recommended for serviceability, stability and reliability.)

  • If your computer DOES NOT have a microphone (instructor will not be able to hear you and depending on your computer, you may not be able to hear instructor) in this scenario you will call-in so that you can hear the instructor. 
  • If your computer DOES NOT have a camera – instructor will not be able to see you.  That is okay.  For the purposes of this class the most important part is that you are able to see and hear the instructor and ask questions. Again, through the chat feature you can type questions to the instructor.  They will monitor these and answer them.
  • If you DO NOT have a computer – use your phone to call into the meeting
  • If you are having technical difficulties email CEAVTech@unm.edu with your phone number, and tech support will get back to you.

Please note: Zoom sessions may be recorded. Classes are recorded only for the use of UNMCE records and archives, participants can turn off video if they do not want their face visible. Recorded sessions are not available for student use or makeup sessions.
