Zoom Web Conferencing

Zoom is a web conferencing tool for hosting online meetings with video, audio, and screen sharing.

Participating in a Zoom conference

The host will provide a link to the conference. You can join via computer or mobile device by clicking on that link. A web cam may be helpful. They are available for checkout from the Help Desk. Although your computer should walk through the steps to participate, you can also learn more about participating in a Zoom meeting.

Hosting a Zoom Conference

A free user account has many usable features, but limits conference time to 40 minutes. To access a Zoom Pro account, contact the Help Desk or Instructional Design, and request Zoom Pro.

Zoom has a variety of ways to learn about hosting conferences:

If you’re sharing these with students and expect to use them for multiple quarters, contact the Instructional Design team to discuss captioning options.

The college has a limited number of Pro licenses. If you’re not going to use Zoom any more, please contact the Help Desk to release the license to another colleague.
