How to connect via ZoomEdit

How to connect: To join just follow this url:

If you have not used Zoom before, you will be prompted to download its launcher program. It works on PC, Mac, and Linux. If necessary, you can also connect through Zoom's iOS or Android app, which you can find on the website. As a last resort, you can also dial in by phone, calling (646) 876-9923 and enter the meeting ID (81986754458). Please keep in mind that if you dial in by phone you will be able to listen, but will miss all visuals.

  • I'd love to talk about the possibility of our switching to using a platform like Here are some articles of incidences that involved Zoom bombing, which obviously we've never been victim to, otherwise we'd be on something like Jitsi! Something more familiar to folks who teach and/or have kids. Zoom is not end-to-end encrypted, whereas Jitsi is and is free to boot.--A21sauce (talk) 18:53, 20 April 2021 (UTC)
