Zoom

Zoom video conferencing helps the university expand traditional classrooms to meet the growing needs of learners.

Teachers of fully-online, hybrid, and flexible classrooms can automatically leverage the campus Zoom licensing to schedule unlimited video meetings to up to 300 participants and store session recordings with automatic audio transcription for later viewing.

Getting started

Switching Accounts: If you have already signed up for Zoom with your university email address, logging in to Zoom via SSO may prompt you to switch to the university-owned Zoom account. Switching to the university account will not impact scheduled meetings or existing recordings, however it is recommended that you download a backup copy of all recordings prior to switching accounts.

If you have a paid license on your existing account, consult with your departmental support technician before switching accounts. You may want to postpone switching to the university license.

Follow these instructions to log into a university-licensed Zoom account.
