Why Use Zoom?
Zoom is easy to use and has great audio and video quality. Faculty can use Zoom to record lectures, hold virtual office hours, and conduct meetings and training sessions online. Also if a faculty member is out of office or away, virtual classes can be held for the students.
There is also the option of synchronizing online instructions or recording sessions or lessons that can be viewed later on, which faculty can give their students access to when they are away or need to review the lesson again. [More Information]
