Zoom

Associated Roles:
  • Students

Zoom is a video conferencing tool that can be used for live class sessions, presentations by guest lecturers, instructor office hours, or interactions between students and peers. Zoom allows you to conduct class or hold meetings in a live online format using a web camera and microphone while sharing the contents of your screen. It features the ability to share your screen, a chat function, a virtual whiteboard, breakout rooms for smaller discussions, and allows you to record your sessions.

Zoom is accessed via the web portal, as a standalone application on your mobile device, or in WebCampus. With the WebCampus integration, you can add the Zoom link to your course menus for easy deployment in your courses.
