Zoom is an application that allows cross-platform chat and video conferencing. It’s a tool for meetings and communication wherever there is a WIFI or Cellular signal. The college utilizes Zoom because it is so widely available especially through the College’s use of Mac, Windows, Linux, Android and iOS.

  • Up to 720P HD Video
  • HD Voice
  • Hosting large meetings of up to 100 participants
  • Unlimited 1 on 1 meetings
  • Active Speaker – When a user is speaking it allows their video to be highlighted through all participants in chat.

Chat Features:
