What is Zoom?

“Zoom is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, chat, and webinars.” It is a tool that enables people to see and hear each other by using the camera on your computer or phone or tablet. It is great for conversations and for sharing activities, presentations and videos.

Zoom is a great way to stay connected virtually online through your computer, tablet or phone.

To learn how to participate check out this helpful video tutorial. (To learn more about Zoom as a product visit Zoom.us.)
