If you haven't used Zoom before, read the following for a short tutorial.

Using Zoom for Office Hours

We are switching to Zoom for online office hours because it’s easier to manage than Skype.

Join the meeting by typing in the meeting ID or clicking directly on the meeting link.

Once you first join the meeting, you will see the following screen:

Waiting screen

Please wait, we will note your position in the queue and move you to the main meeting as soon as possible.

Once you are admitted to the main meeting, you will see all the waiting students over there. If there are too many people talking through audio at the same time, please consider using the chat feature. You can do both group chats and private chats. You will see the following interface for the main meeting:

Main meeting: student view

Sometimes teaching staff may also answer questions directly. If you have questions regarding your code please refrain from discussing them in the main meeting room.

Once a TF is ready to help you, you will receive a notification about an invitation to a Breakout Room. Accept the invitation by clicking “Join”. If you think you dismissed the invitation by accident, just click the “Breakout Room” icon at the bottom of the screen and it should show up again. The TF will only be helping you individually in the breakout room, not in the main meeting.

Please contact cs61-staff@g.harvard.edu or post on Piazza for any questions or concerns.
