The Center for Learning in Retirement will be launching an exclusively online fall semester using Zoom! If you are not familiar with the program, don't worry! We have developed an 'Introduction to Zoom' training class to help you! Bob Bertolasi, CLR computer instructor, will be leading the training sessions. Step-by-step written Zoom instructions have been created for CLR members to make things easier, which will be emailed to you upon completion of the training. These will also be available on our website under the 'Online Learning FAQs & Resources page. We can also offer one-to-one assistance if that is needed. The first step to this training is to download the Zoom application to your device. You can find step-by-step instructions on how to do this below for both Windows users and Apple/Mac users. If you are in need of assistance, please contact the CLR office at (815) 921-3931.

Instructions for Downloading Zoom

The basic “Introduction to Zoom” training will include:

  • An overview of what Zoom is and its capabilities
  • Downloading the Zoom application onto your computer or device
