How can I access a Zoom presentation from Virtual Chair?

Each conference space within Virtual Chair has a presentation area called a Plenary Room which is found at the top of the screen.  Navigate your avatar to the plenary room door to enter the room. To join the Zoom presentation, have your avatar take a seat on a vacant stool and press “X” on your keyboard. At this point you will be presented with a Zoom link on the screen. Clicking the link will automatically launch Zoom on your computer to watch the presentation. Steps below:

  1. Enter the Plenary Room at the top of the screen through either of the doorways.
