Zoom Desktop Conferencing
Zoom is VCU's official desktop conferencing solution to support remote instruction and collaboration. To access your VCU Zoom account, or to create one, please login at vcu.zoom.us with your VCU credentials.
Zoom accounts are available to all currently enrolled students and currently employed faculty, staff or affiliates with a "vcu.edu" eID. VCU Health System physicians and employees with "@vcuhealth.org" credentials may acquire and access Zoom accounts at vcuhealth.zoom.us.
Zoom has created an online resource for educators as part of its COVID-19 response efforts. It includes helpful ideas and pointers for conducting online courses.
Indiana University offers a helpful guide for higher ed: Zoom To The Next Level: Active Learning in the Virtual Classroom.
The VCU Zoom FAQs are also a good source for pointers on how to make the most of Zoom's capabilities.
