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.
Other ways to use Zoom effectively, including Sociology Professor Jill Grisby’s example, can be found in Beth McMurtrie’s “How to Make Breakout Rooms Work Better” from the Chronicle of Higher Education.
