The virtual meeting tool, Zoom, is low-cost, easy to use and provides a high quality and stable meeting environment for synchronous class sessions or meetings. There is also a recording function which can be used to record lectures or other course resources. In this presentation we would like to demonstrate Zoom as the tool we found to be most helpful and easy-to-use for virtual class meetings.Participants will practice using the tool.

Did you have experience using other virtual meeting tools before trying zoom? Did seeing and hearing everyone in the meeting change the virtual meeting experience? What differences did you notice?Continue

"As part of the 2012 IIT grant for the project "“Virtual Study Abroad” Using Meeting and Mobile Tools to Promote Student Engagement & International Interaction", virtual meeting tools were used to conduct synchronous sessions connecting students in various countries. After testing various virtual meeting tools for the grant, researchers found the virtual meeting tool Zoom to be the most user friendly and effective in promoting student interaction and engagement.

Zoom displays HD video, can provide IP Hosted solutions for selected teleconferencing equipment and also offers voice conferencing services. There can be up to 25 connections, which serves most of our class groups. Another useful function provided by Zoom is the ability to record sessions. By default the recordings are placed on the local drive or designated network drive of the host after it has been packaged. Some instructors have used this function to record lectures and interviews which they post in their online courses. Screen sharing is very simple, there is a chat box and a whiteboard function. Participants do not need to set up an account. There are free accounts for up to 40 minute meetings, and a yearlong subscription is only $100, allowing for unlimited meeting lengths." - Lorette Pellettiere Calix
