An Introduction to Zoom Video Communications

An Introduction to Zoom

Hollywood Senior Center is excited to now offer virtual programming so you can continue to participate in some of the Center’s classes that you enjoy.

Many of our classes will be offered through Zoom, a service that offers video communications. This service is free for you to use when participating in Hollywood Senior Center Zoom Programs.

You can join the Zoom meeting from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device. Please note the meeting ID and Password when you join a meeting.  The ID and Password are unique for each class. Zoom also allows for you to participate by phone for those who want audio only. You may need to still call in for the audio even if you are using a device.

All zoom programming will include a direct link to join the meeting. Simply click that link. For those dialing in via one of the toll-free phone numbers that are provided in the email, you do NOT need a participant number; simply press the # key.

When you click on “join a meeting” on any of your devices, for the first time only, you will be asked to download the ZOOM application. It is amongst the quickest, easiest downloads I, and anyone with whom I tested this, have experienced. Simply click, or tap, “Yes” if asked for permission.

Feel free to reach out to HSC staff at for questions.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we navigate this new world in which we find ourselves.
