Zoom is a video conferencing and webinar platform available to students and faculty. Zoom meetings can be created via the Zoom website, desktop client, or through the Zoom integration in Canvas. Meetings can be scheduled in advanced, and provide a number of security and utility features like passwords, breakout rooms, waiting rooms, etc.
To join a meeting, you can either use the meeting's URL or, if the meeting was created in Canvas, the link on the Zoom tab in the associated Canvas course. Participants in a meeting can share their audio, video, and screens depending on the meeting's settings.
Zoom videos recorded to the Cloud are automatically uploaded to the host's My Media.
