Zoom combines video conferencing, online meetings, and mobile collaboration into one platform.

Teaching with Zoom

Zoom allows users to virtually communicate face to face, making it the ideal platform for online courses, meetings, or social events. Features include chat, screen sharing, a whiteboard, breakout rooms, polls, recordings, and more—enabling online synchronous discussion and collaboration. You might use Zoom for one-on-one conferences, group meetings, or virtual office hours.
