Zoom is a web conferencing application that can be used for online meetings, webinars, chat, mobile collaboration and other types of online communication. NC State instructors can use Zoom in their courses to conduct synchronous online class meetings or to hold online office hours.
As a videoconferencing tool, Zoom can be used for presentations, class discussions, exam reviews, guest lectures or class group work. Zoom also offers two separate add-ons for Google Calendar and Gmail. The add-ons allow you to schedule, join, and manage meetings via Zoom directly from your calendar or email. Instructions for enabling Zoom add-ons can be found in How to Install the Zoom Add-On for Google (Google Doc).
NC State’s license includes a Licensed account (formerly known as a “Pro” account) for active university employees and students. All university employees and students with an active “@ncsu.edu” email address can create and host Zoom meetings.
