Zoom Meetings

Zoom Meetings can accommodate up to 300 participants.
Meetings can be created and joined from a web browser or using the Zoom Application.

Zoom Application: Install and open the Zoom application.
Zoom on the Web: Visit Bakercollege.zoom.us
See Zoom - Overview to learn more about getting started with Zoom.


The most efficient method of creating Zoom Meetings is with Google Calendar. This can create events with reminders and send out email invites automatically. The first time doing this, you may need to grant permission to Zoom from Google.

Join using an e-mail invitation after the host creates and invites you to a meeting:

If provided by the Meeting Host, you can join a meeting by ID number.
