When there is a large group in your Zoom session, and everyone is trying to speak at the same time, your voice can be missed.

Zoom has the option to “Raise” your hand. When you click this, the instructors will see your hand is raised, and will know to pause to answer your question.

Raise Hand

To Raise Hand: Click “Reactions” at bottom of screen, then click ‘Raise Hand”.

A Raised Hand will appear in your top left corner of your screen.

Lower Hand

When your question has been answered, you will need to lower your hand or we will think you still have more questions. Click the “Reactions” button again and select “lower hand”.

OR Right click your profile icon/box, and click “Lower Hand”.


You can also use “yes” or “no” in “Reactions” to communicate if you understand or not, when muted.
