Zoom

About:
Zoom allows faculty, staff, and students to have high-quality interaction in real time from their computers and mobile devices. Zoom's web-based conferencing uses high-quality video and audio and is accessible on MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android mobile devices. Zoom also includes free telephone bridging, so you can bring in participants via telephone as well. The Zoom recording feature will allow you to save a session for future reference and/or send it to those who are unable to attend.
