Appalachian's web conferencing tool, Zoom, allows faculty, staff, and students to interact live via a web interface. Web conferencing allows anyone with a computer and Internet connection or a mobile device with the app installed to interact with two-way audio, video, chat, screen sharing, breakout rooms, recording, and more. Users can send invitations to any email address, so it is easy to bring in participants from outside the University.
All faculty, staff, and students have Zoom 'Pro' accounts, and are equally able to use this product, both to host and to attend meetings and optionally record an unlimited number of online meetings with up to 300 participants.
For larger meetings (more than 300 participants), see the Center for Academic Excellence's Zoom Large License Reservations.
For information about licensing costs to use Zoom Webinar, please contact Tom Van Gilder.
