Join a Zoom Meeting Like a Pro

April 13, 2020

Last month, we shared a variety of fun, Milo-themed, virtual backgrounds for you to use during Zoom meetings. Now, we introduce to you professional, CU Denver-branded backgrounds to use, let’s say, for a meeting with a dean or campus leader. If you’re new to Zoom or need some help downloading the professional backgrounds, we’ve included instructions for you below.
