Zoom

Now you can. In a collaborative effort with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and OneNet, UCO now offers Zoom – a web conferencing tool that unifies cloud video conferencing, online meetings and collaboration into a single intuitive platform.

Why Zoom?

As a cost-savings strategy, UCO IT has reduced overall web conferencing costs by 90% per licensed user. Additionally, Zoom aligns with IT’s availability strategy – to provide secure, reliable access to university resources for students, faculty, and staff – and improves student engagement by providing opportunity for more effective learning in virtual classrooms with any mobile device.

Zoom at Central

Zoom brings Central the ability to create virtual meetings using an audio and video conferencing service, supported by all mobile devices, desktops, and on-campus room systems. The tool also offers group messaging and screen sharing capabilities. Coming in September, Zoom will support the university’s first large-scale virtual conference for promoting undergraduate research.

Zoom and You

Tear down boundaries in your online classrooms, quickly call face-to-face meetings without leaving your office and utilize Zoom for trainings and technical support functions –  all with multi-layered security, offering a rich web conferencing experience.

Details include:

  • HD video conferencing
  • Online meetings for up to 100 participants
  • Screen sharing
  • Mobile collaboration
  • Security
