Zoom Web Conferencing Now Available

Last Updated: 07/07/2014

Over the last few months, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) has been evaluating a new web conferencing service to replace Adobe Connect, a service scheduled to be retired this summer due to low usage rates. We are pleased to announce that Zoom will replace it. Zoom is a web conferencing tool that unifies cloud video conferencing, online meetings, and collaboration into a single intuitive platform.

Features and Benefits of Zoom

  • Ease of use
  • Enhanced video (high definition), audio and recording capabilities
  • Real-time feedback of degraded quality issues
  • Mobile collaboration
  • Authentication via Google; no need for separate user account
  • Multi-layer security

Timeline

Zoom is now available for use for anyone interested in this service. To learn more about Zoom and Zoom Pro accounts please visit the Zoom webpage.

Adobe Connect, the previous web conferencing service, will be disabled on August 15. OIT will be communicating about that as the date approaches.
