Zoom Conferencing

Zoom is a video, audio, and web conferencing service accessible on any computer, mobile device, and telephone.  A Zoom conference session has one or more hosts and participants. Only hosts need to have Zoom accounts (participants do not need Zoom accounts). All UCI faculty, staff, and students are now eligible to obtain a Zoom Pro account, which allows you to schedule Zoom meetings with up to 300 participants over an unlimited number of minutes.

Zoom is one of many services that are now available to the campus for free. Visit https://techprep.oit.uci.edu for more information.
