Zoom Video Communications (or simply Zoom) is a cloud-based video communication platform available in your courses. This feature enables video conferencing and online meetings for you and your students.
Zoom is a synchronous tool designed to create a stronger sense of community in the online environment. Use Zoom to answer student questions immediately, negotiate meaning for complicated concepts, clear up misunderstandings about assignments, and provide examples.
Note: There is a 40 minute time restriction for Basic (free) Zoom accounts. You will need to schedule multiple Zoom meetings if you expect to exceed the allotted 40 minute time frame.
