Zoom Video Conferencing
Zoom is a full-featured video and collaborative technology that unifies cloud video conferencing, simple online meetings, and group messaging into one easy-to-use platform. Zoom accounts allow for video, audio, and content sharing between up to 300 participants in a meeting or 500 in a webinar from any device including Windows and Mac computers, Android and iOS devices.
Anyone in the world can join a Zoom meeting, but only a host can start/schedule meetings. Use your StarID and password to sign in to your host account.
(you will need the meeting id provided to you)

How Can I Avoid "Zoom-Bombing"?
- Consider using a generically created meeting ID, not your personal meeting ID (this can be done in the schedule meetings option)
- Allow only authenticated users to join your meeting
- Use meeting passwords for your meetings.
- If using a password for a class, you can share the password in D2L with your class.
