What Is Zoom?
Zoom uses HD video conferencing and screen-sharing to provide rich, interactive communication for up to 100 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. If you have a licensed account you can host up to 300 participants at at time.
For more examples on Zoom use at NYIT, please see the Weekly Teaching Note: Sometimes, You Really Need to Meet Face-to-Face.
