Zoom is a video conferencing tool for remote meetings, online courses, and webinars. Zoom can be used on desktop computers, mobile devices, and multimedia room systems.
- Students are eligible for the Zoom Basic account which allows users to host meetings up to 40 minutes. To host longer meetings, students must purchase the Pro account directly from the Zoom website or choose other options. We recommend no cost alternatives such as Skype, Google Hangouts or Facebook Group Chat.
- Faculty and staff are eligible for Zoom Pro accounts which allows users to host group meetings for larger audiences and record meetings for future playback.
- A Zoom Pro account is not required to attend and participate in a Zoom meeting.
