ZOOM for Videoconferencing

What is Zoom?

Zoom is a product that unifies cloud video conferencing, simple online meetings, group messaging, and a software-defined conference room solution into one easy-to-use platform. It offers the best video, audio, and wireless screen-sharing experience across Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android systems. It makes video and web conferencing easy to do!

 

What can you use it for?

You can hold meetings, conduct interviews, even meet with your students from your device and invite up to 50 participants.

 

How does it work?

We will set up an account for you to use. Once you have the account all you need to do is schedule your event, copy the meeting invitation information, paste the meeting information into an email, and sent it to the invitees.

The email will contain the date, time, and directions. Right before the event they click on the link that will take them to the event and participate. You can talk to them and they to you! If your participants have access to a camera from their device everyone will be able to see each other on the event screen! (This feature can be turned off and microphones can be muted)
