Zoom (old)

Zoom is a cloud conferencing solution that can be used for small group sessions or large administration meetings all within one easy-to-use platform. Host and participants can access Zoom through any laptop or mobile devices at https://luc.zoom.us/, which makes Zoom an excellent solution for working in the office or on the go. This platform allows for robust audio, video, files, and screen sharing. It also fosters interactive with collaborative editing, polling, and breakout rooms. Hosts can record meetings and make them available to participants, or post them as public resources. All active faculty, staff, and students have the ability to host their own meetings.

It is essential to check and install Zoom client updates with regularity to be compliant with Zoom's updates.  You can download and install the latest Zoom client at https://zoom.us/download.  You can also check for updates if you have the Zoom client already installed.  First, sign in via SSO in the Zoom client.  Then, click your profile picture (located in the upper right next to the search box), and select Check for Updates.  If there is a newer version available, Zoom will download and install it.
