Zoom is a cloud-based video communications application that allows users to set up virtual video and audio conferencing, live chats, screen-sharing, and other collaborative capabilities. Zoom is accessible on a computer desktop or mobile device.
As of October 1, 2020, all EIU faculty, staff, and students have a licensed Zoom account.
Licensed users can host meetings with unlimited minutes for up to 300 participants.
EIU faculty, staff, and students can schedule/host Zoom meetings from the EIU Zoom website, from the Zoom app, or through Outlook. Zoom meetings can also be scheduled/hosted by the instructor in a course in D2L.
