Zoom is a cloud-based software that combines video conferencing, online meetings, and mobile collaboration into one platform. As the officially supported videoconferencing solution for LC, it is used institution-wide for distance learning, meetings, interviews, and more. IT provides Pro accounts for faculty/staff.
Lewis & Clark owns 150 Pro Licenses. Only the host of the meeting, the person who is initiating the meeting, needs a license. Participants can connect without a license.
If you would like more information about getting connected with Zoom and to request a Zoom Pro license, please contact the IT Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When users login at http://zoom.us they will be prompted to download and install the Zoom application, that is used to start or schedule meetings. You can also schedule meetings from within Google Calendar by installing the plugins for Firefox or Chrome. This will add a button allowing you to “Make it a Zoom Meeting” when scheduling a meeting on your calendar.
