CONNECTING TO THE ZOOM MEETING / EMCEE

  • From an Internet browser, go to zoom.com. 
  • Select “Join a Meeting” from the header.
  • Enter Zoom meeting ID: 3013779706.
  • Every unique location needs to connect to the Zoom meeting.

SET-UP FOR TEAMMATES GATHERING IN ONE LOCATION

ZOOM MEETING 

The team host should project the Adult Virtual Trivia Night Zoom meeting from their computer to a TV or large monitor so team members can see it. Verify the volume is working.

2nd DEVICE TO SUBMIT ANSWERS

    1. Option 1: iPad/iPhone. The team captain can use an iPad/iPhone to submit answers. In an Internet browser type: crowd.live/1STHR
    2. Option 2: Laptop. The team captain can use the same laptop that is connected to the Zoom meeting. Open a second Internet browser and type crowd.live/1STHR. The team captain will need to toggle or minimize both tabs so they are seen simultaneously.

SET-UP FOR TEAMMATES GATHERING IN SEPARATE LOCATIONS

ZOOM MEETING – OPTION 1 – ZOOM BREAKOUT ROOMS

    1. Each unique location (e.g. a player’s residence) will need to connect to the Adult Virtual Trivia Night Zoom meeting. For example, if 3 couples are a team and they are each at their own residence, then 3 people would need to connect (not all 6 teammates).
    2. If desired, project the Zoom meeting to a TV or large monitor so other team members at that location can see it. Verify the volume is working.
    3. The emcee will read the question or show a video clip in the Zoom meeting main room.
    4. Teammates will then be sent to a breakout room to discuss their answer.
    5. Teammates will need to accept the request to enter the breakout room.
    6. Once in the breakout room, teammates can privately discuss their answer. The team captain will submit their answers using a second device or browser (details in section 6).
    7. After each question, breakout room players will be brought back into the main room to hear the answer and the next question.

ZOOM MEETING – OPTION 2 – INDEPENDENT CONFERENCING

    1. Each unique location (e.g. their residence) will need to connect to the Adult Virtual Trivia Night Zoom meeting. For example, if 3 couples are a team and they are each at their own residence, then 3 people would need to connect (not all 6).
    2. If desired, project the Zoom meeting to a TV or large monitor so other team members at that location can see it. Verify the volume is working.
    3. The emcee will read the question or show a video clip in the Zoom meeting main room.
    4. Teammates stay in the main room, since they are using another means to discuss their answer. Some examples include:
      • Teammates connect via a conference call
      • Teammates connect via a FaceTime group call
      • Teammates connect via another Zoom meeting
    5. The team captain will need a 3rd device or 3rd browser to submit answers. (Device 1 is connected to the Trivia Zoom meeting; Device 2 is connected to teammates; Device 3 is used to submit answers.)

QUESTION DELIVERY

Participants will join the Zoom meeting to see/hear the emcee who will read the questions and provide score updates.

ANSWER SUBMISSION – TEAM CAPTAIN ONLY

Only one person will submit the team’s response. This is true for both scenarios – teammates gathering in one location or teammates playing in separate locations.

OPTION 1: Configure iPad/iPhone (only team captain needs to do this). The device used to submit the answers can also hear the audio/video questions. To optimize the iPad/iPhone volume follow these steps:

      1. Go to the home screen
      2. From the top right corner, swipe to the middle of the screen to get this screen: 
      3. Adjust the volume bar to the right so it is near maximum. 

OPTION 2: The team captain can use the same laptop that is connected to the Zoom meeting. A second browser window will need to be opened to answer the questions. Both screens should be minimized so they can be viewed simultaneously. 

Whichever option you use above, follow these steps to get into the trivia game.

    1. Go to an Internet browser
    2. Type: crowd.live
    3. Enter the game code:1STHR
    4. Enter your team name in the Nickname field.
    5. Enter the email address of the person who registered. 
    6. Select “Go.”

 

Audio questions can be heard in the Zoom meeting, but as a back up, the team captain can play the audio on the device being used to submit the answers. Each time an audio question is asked, you will need to turn on the speaker which is on the left side of the screen (not the play button on top of the video). Once you select it, the speaker icon will turn green (on).

 

SUBMIT YOUR ANSWER: Once the question is read, the countdown timer begins. Teams will have 1 minute to discuss answer. The team captain will type the answer and press “submit.”

You’re all set! Wait for the Adult Virtual Trivia Night to begin. Have fun and good luck!
