Zoom Video Conferencing

Zoom unifies cloud video conferencing, simple online meetings, group messaging, and a software-defined conference room solution into one easy-to-use platform. This solution offers audio, video, and screen-sharing experience across Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and Blackberry platforms.

Anyone in the world can join a Zoom meeting but only a host can start/schedule meetings. Use your university email and password to sign into your account.
