ZOOM is a powerful FERPA compliant cloud based video and audio web-conferencing, collaboration, and chat tool that functions across multiple platforms including: mobile devices, desktops, laptops, and telephones. With easy integration into learning management systems, calendars, and an intuitive interface the standard version of the ZOOM conferencing tool, available to all faculty/staff and students, can bring up to ten users together in real time. Here at Bradley we also have a limited number of Pro versions of the tool available upon request which increases the number of users in a session to 100. Use-cases for ZOOM abound, but see below for ideas on how to integrate it into your course, committee meetings, or a host of other activities!
