Zoom is a best-in-class online communication and collaboration tool that provides video conferencing, web conferencing, and audio conferencing (both device-based and phone), as well as audio/video/sharing, all with an intuitive and easy-to-use user interface.
Meet and collaborate virtually using Zoom by logging in with your university credentials. All active faculty, staff and students are licensed for meetings up to 500 participants. You can even use Zoom on the go with the Zoom app for mobile devices!
The university's Zoom encryption is configured for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA ) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliance; however, be sure to use caution with sensitive information. To ensure the security and privacy of patient data, Zoom users must do their part as well.
