Instructors may decide to use Zoom within a course. This is a service that allows students to join web meetings and webinars across a variety of devices. In its Zoom iconeducational application, it allows instructors to hold lectures or class meetings online, providing a web-based, real-time interaction between professors and students. Zoom could be used for face-to-face lectures, presentations, group student work, or online office hours.

Zoom is available to faculty, staff, and students. Guests may be able to log into a meeting, but only at the Host's discretion, using a link or inputting a meeting ID (custom-made series of numbers and letters) to join the meeting.
