Zoom, Web-based Video Conference Tool, Replacing Scopia

Zoom is a complete solution for fully interactive local and global communication with peers, collaborators, students, and for other office and instructional needs.

Zoom will allow virtually any device with internet connectivity (computer, portable, tablet, mobile phone, room system, etc.) to connect and interactively participate in meetings as well as sharing the content from their devices if required. Your pro room will allow up to 50 people to participate at a single time. You can record the meeting to your local computer. There is no time limit on meetings. Recordings can be uploaded directly to Panopto for secure archive and access.

Canvas, Zoom, and Panopto give you robust, integrated tools that should meet your needs for contingency, review, and instruction.

Zoom, Panopto, and other tools are integrated with Canvas now. So if you are managing your course in Canvas, you can have a Zoom module that allows those in your course to <click and meet> from within the Canvas environment.
