Zoom is a full-featured video and collaborative technology that unifies cloud video conferencing, simple online meetings, and group messaging into one easy-to-use platform. Zoom accounts allow for video, audio, and content sharing between up to 300 participants in a meeting or 500 in a webinar from any device including Windows and Mac computers, and Android and iOS devices.
Getting Started with Zoom
Use your StarID and StarID password to sign in and set up your Zoom account.
High capacity meeting rooms: invite up to 300 people to regular meetings or host a webinar space and invite up to 500.
Easy scheduling: Choose unique URLs for different meetings or keep the location consistent every time. Outlook Calendar integration allows quick coordination of meeting invitees.
Invite anyone: Anyone can join your meetings and webinars, even if they don’t have a Zoom account.
Join by phone: Don’t have access to quality video and audio on your computer? Call in to meetings on the phone instead!
Conference room and classroom integration: Connect your Zoom meetings to room systems on campus and use their high-quality cameras, microphones, and monitors.
Helpful tools: Screen share and use digital whiteboards for visual aids during meetings. Review meetings later with the option to record and download.
Record Sessions: As an optional setting, meeting hosts can choose to record their meetings and store the recordings in the cloud or on their computer.
