Zoom

Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing tool that combines the ability to virtually meet across platforms and devices with the opportunity for meeting hosts (instructors) to collaborate with participants (students) through application and desktop sharing, high definition audio and video transmission, and web-based chat. For more information, please visit zoom.us.

Zoom Mobile App

You can download the Zoom mobile app for your iOS or Android device from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. You do not need to have a Zoom account to join a meeting from the mobile app. 

Below are tutorials on Zoom's website

Any faculty member who plans to record a lecture or provide a virtual classroom environment can use Zoom.

At the Zoom Help Center users can find support for their individual platform (Mac, Linux, Windows, Android, or iOS). Support includes how-to articles on features of Zoom such as testing audio, troubleshooting video and browser-based errors, and signing in and joining a meeting.

Also at the Zoom Help Center are Frequently Asked Questions that serve as first-line support for inquiries.
