Teaching with Zoom
Zoom is a dynamic, easy-to-use web conferencing system that you can use for meetings, and if necessary, for online teaching.
Zoom provides a cloud-based platform for video and audio conferencing, mobile collaboration and online meetings. Zoom is accessible on MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android mobile devices. Anyone in the world can join a Zoom meeting, but only a host can start/create meetings; only the meeting host needs to have a Zoom account. Use it anytime for any meeting, conference, class, or person-to-person video calls.
