Do you have the need for high quality video conferencing and screen/application sharing in your online or blended class? If you are currently using tools like Adobe Connect, Skype, GoToMeeting for administrative purposes, you might be interested in Zoom. We encourage you to use Zoom for both instructional and administrative meetings. Zoom, a cloud-based technology, allows faculty, staff and students to have high-quality interaction in real time from their computers and mobile devices. Zoom's web-based conferencing uses high-quality video and audio and is accessible on MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android mobile devices. Zoom also includes telephone bridging (not toll free), so you can bring in participants via telephone as well. The Zoom recording feature will allow you to save a session for future reference and/or send it to those who are unable to attend.
