About ZOOM

Zoom is a powerful cloud video conferencing platform that allows you to host “meetings” with hundreds of participants. Using Zoom, educators can share lesson plans, give instruction, swap files with students, and communicate directly with the group or individuals via chat, all within the app. Zoom's free version equips you with the most essential tools needed to communicate with others remotely. With this tool, quality is optimal, even for their non-paying users.

How to Zoom – Downloading and Installing the Zoom Application prior to your first Zoom Meeting.

To ensure a pleasant experience with your first Zoom Meeting, we highly encourage individuals to download and install the Zoom Application beforehand. 

To download and install the Zoom Application:

  • Go to https://zoom.us/download and from the Download Center, click on the Download button under “Zoom Client For Meetings”.
  • This application will automatically download when you start your first Zoom Meeting.
  • Once the download is complete, proceed with installing the Zoom application onto your computer.

Is there a better alternative?

There is a number of video conferencing applications in the market. Skype is one of the biggest and oldest names in the competition. Much like Zoom, it allows one-to-one video calls, instant messaging, screen sharing, group calls, and file sharing.

Zoom allows your school to expand its impact across geographies to reach more students and offer new learning opportunities by including guest lecturers from literally anywhere. It also makes collaborating with other educators and administrators easy. 

Zoom has allowed online learning programs to be more successfully deployed when compared to competing products. The video quality of Zoom allows all remote participants to better see the faces of their classmates, while easily integrating content sharing, breakouts, and annotation.

Zoom combines HD video conferencing, online business meetings, webinars, and mobile capabilities into one collaborative solution.

But the best part is that only one person has to download Zoom. Everyone else can simply click on the meeting link (reoccuring or unique) and jump right in from their phone, tablet, or desktop. 

With Zoom, there's no need to combine various video conferencing solutions in order to achieve great results for online business meetings. We simply use Zoom. We've noticed a complete drop off in both delays and downtime. And if we ever need anything, Zoom offers a comprehensive knowledge base on their website.
