All ACU staff have access to the full version of Zoom to use for meetings or online teaching. You may use your ACU login to access your Zoom account.
To begin using Zoom:
You may now use the Zoom app or the Zoom website create meeting rooms and manage recordings.
To use Zoom effectively, be sure to check the Knowledge Base articles developed by IT on How to use Zoom. There are articles on How to log in, join a meeting, set up the audio and share your screen.
A new meeting can be created in the Zoom application or through the Zoom website (recommended), and then add a link to your meeting room in your LEO unit using a URL link or by adding the a link inside a Label to share the full invitation with phone dial-in numbers.
