Zoom – Video and Web Conferencing with Zoom (IT Training Tip)

Interested in hosting a video and web conference, but sometimes get frustrated with using Skype? Even to make things worse, you can’t find your participant’s Skype ID, the versions of Skype that you and your participant are using may not up-to-date or even compatible with each other, or your participant may not even use Skype. Sound all too familiar

Bates now has a simple to use solution that is now available to everyone at Bates! Zoom is a Video and Web Conferencing tool that allows you to host video and web conferences from your computer, mobile device, or even from one of the college’s Zoom Configured Classrooms on-campus.

With Zoom’s easy to use interface, you can be hosting a one-to-one video and web conference with another individual in just a couple of minutes.

All you need to do is:

  • Login to Zoom (Host Meeting – with Video).
  • Pick your Audio Preference (Join Audio Conference by Computer is the most popular).
  • Invite your Participant*.
  • Once the participant receives your invitation, all they need to do is click on your meeting link to join you.

It’s that easy!
