What Is Zoom?

Zoom uses HD video conferencing and screen-sharing to provide rich, interactive communication for up to 25 people at a time. It offers mobile-screen sharing, document annotation, session recording, and works across desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. There's also a free teleconference number so people can call into the meeting, if they do not have a webcam.

 

Why use Zoom?

  • Hold quick group meetings across campuses
  • Hold virtual office hours
  • Use the recording feature to save a session for future reference, and share it with people who couldn't attend in real-time.
  • Bring in a guest speaker from a remote location
  • Share a document or presentation, and annotate it while you discuss it together
  • Simple user interface
  • Give keyboard and mouse control to another participant - great for troubleshooting!
  • Use two monitors to see participants on one screen, and the presentation on the other
  • The only person who needs an account is the person who originates the meeting
  • HIPAA-compliant

Try it now - you already have an account!  See these instructions for how to log in.

 

Key Features:

  • HD video- and audio-conferencing (with a phone line if folks need to call in) for up to 25 people at a time
  • Active and spotlight speaker -very useful for meetings with multiple participants
  • Private and group chat during the meeting
  • Accessible from mac, windows, iOS, and android devices. 
  • Screen Sharing - desktop and mobile - (e.g. revise an article prior to submission)
  • Video recording - MP4 recording and playback-, screen annotations ( e.g. record an exam review session and put it on Blackboard so students who could not be there in person can access the information or record a technology training session or simply a meeting and share it online with those who could not attend)
  • Single sign-on (sign in with your NYIT username and password)
  • Schedule meetings in advance and schedule recurring meetings -a link that is stable for one year - (e.g. office hours, advising, talking with students at their clinical sites, quick meetings with people on another campus)
  • Please note that every faculty at NYIT has a basic account - a meeting is limited to 40 minutes at a time, if you have a need for a Pro account without the time restiction please contact the CTL.
