Zoom is a video conferencing tool that allows you to have video and audio communication with your students or colleagues, as well as present content such as PowerPoint presentations, PDFs, or videos. Zoom can hold up to 300 students at a time and the sessions will be downloaded directly to your computer from where you can upload them to Panopto or Canvas. Zoom is integrated with Canvas, so you can create and access your Zoom meetings directly from Canvas, and your students will also be able to view and access the Zoom meetings.
