What is Zoom?
Zoom is a synchronous conferencing tool that is integrated with ELMS-Canvas, which enables ease of access for students enrolled in a course. Zoom allows instructors to conduct one-on-one and class meetings in real-time. Features such as polling, chat, file sharing, and desktop sharing support engagement and collaboration in the online classroom. Sessions can be scheduled on the fly or in advance. Sessions can be recorded and will be saved locally when you end the meeting. - Adapted from IT Service Now.
