The web conferencing software Zoom is now available to NC State users. As part of the WolfWare suite of tools, Zoom is being deployed to support academic needs related to synchronous video communication and collaboration. The tool has a variety of instructional purposes, such as presentations, class discussions, exam reviews, guest lectures, or class group work. The Zoom implementation is being coordinated by DELTA and our campus partners (CALS Extension and NC State Libraries). To use Zoom, go to https://ncsu.zoom.us and log in with your NC State credentials.
