Download and Install Zoom

Zoom is currently UC’s preferred method for video conferencing. UC has a site license for Zoom which means it is free for all UC faculty, staff, and students.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT ZOOM’S UNDERLYING CONCEPT: Zoom is not about conducting visual phone calls (such as in Skype for Business). Zoom is about creating a virtual “room” in which you can meet with people. So you don’t “call” someone – instead you go into a virtual meeting room and then invite them to join you.
