Here is a link to a 1 minute YouTube Video "How to Join a Zoom Meeting." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIkCmbvAHQQ If you just want to sit in on a Zoom meeting all you need is the ability to watch a video on your computer. If you want to participate you need a microphone. Many computers have a speaker and a microphone built in. If yours does not, you can obtain a headset with a boom microphone. External speakers will improve your experience. If you want to be seen by others you need a web camera. If your computer does not have a camera you can purchase one.
