Zoom (video conferencing)

Zoom can be used to host and attend remote instruction, hold meetings, and collaborate digitally with colleagues, classmates, and friends. Zoom can be used on any computer, tablet, or mobile phone.

Zoom Enterprise is available now for all UCI faculty, staff, and students. Zoom meetings will allow up to 300 attendees per session over an unlimited number of minutes. You can facilitate interactive meetings in real time, video chat, create polls, screen share and share documents. Live sessions can also be recorded and distributed to enable access by participants who are unable to attend live sessions.

You can sign up for Zoom by visiting https://uci.zoom.us and signing in with your UCInetID and password.

A quick start guide for basic functionality is hosted by Zoom. If you already have an existing account you will be asked if you want to migrate it. It is safe to do, all your data will be migrated to the campus instance and your old account closed. If you are seeking to leverage Zoom for your course, please visit the UCI Pedagogical Continuity webpage or review the tips hosted by the Paul Merage School of Business .  OIT has also created https://techprep.oit.uci.edu, a central resource updated frequently to help the campus community be better prepared for working, teaching, and learning remotely.

If you have any questions regarding Zoom, please contact the OIT Service Desk at (949) 824-2222 or by email oit@uci.edu.
