What is Zoom?
Zoom is a video-conferencing platform for which NEOMED owns a license. Zoom allows you to engage in live Web conversations with your students using audio, video, and text-based chat features.
Unlike a video-conferencing program like Skype or Google Hangouts, you do not need a unique username or account to use Zoom. Instead, your NEOMED ID and password will allow you to generate a link (much like you might for an Office 365 Document) and a phone number that you can share with anyone. Participants can then follow the web link or call the phone number to join in on a live conversation.
You can access NEOMED Zoom in three different ways:
- Download the NEOMED Zoom application
- Visit neomed.zoom.us and log-in with your NEOMED ID and password. From there, you can download the essential software application and create future meeting links.
- Integrate Zoom into your AIMS site. If you use AIMS extensively, you can follow the NEOMED AIMS team’s instructions for creating a direct link for Zoom that directly integrates into your AIMS course site.
