Zoom is a video conferencing tool used at IU. It allows you to participate in lectures as live, synchronous events. You can use it to interact with your instructor and fellow classmates just as you would in a face-to-face lecture experience.
Zoom integrates into Canvas as an external tool, and has apps for all platforms, including fully featured iOS and Android apps. Its high-quality video and recording features also allow for recording simple videos with a webcam.
You might be expected to do any of the following:
- attend scheduled Zoom meetings
- notify the instructor if you are unable to attend
- watch a recording (posted to Canvas/Kaltura) and complete an assignment if you are unable to attend
Your instructor will provide you with a link to access the Zoom room. It is important to access the Zoom room only at scheduled meeting times.
