 Zoom

Zoom is a synchronous videoconferencing platform that can be used for small meetings as well as large online conferences.  Zoom allows you to share your screen, record the session and host high quality video meetings. Zoom works on iPads, iPhone, Windows and Mac, and Android devices.

 

Zoom

Licensed Zoom accounts are now available for all Penn Law faculty, staff and students. Accounts are hosted on the University of Pennsylvania’s new central Zoom service: https://upenn.zoom.us/.

 

With your new Zoom account, you will be able to:

  • Host unlimited meetings for up to 300 participants. Meetings can last up to 24 hours.
  • Use Zoom’s video conferencing and web conferencing features to collaborate inside and outside of class sessions
  • Take advantage of Zoom’s other collaborative features.

IMPORTANT: This change does not impact how faculty will use Zoom in their courses. Faculty should continue to use the Zoom link in their Canvas sites for teaching as documented in our Remote Teaching Guide.

FAQs

What’s my Zoom user ID?

Although users of Penn’s central Zoom service will use their PennKey and password to create a Zoom account, once you’re signed into Zoom, your user ID and Zoom email will be PennKey@upenn.edu.

 

MEETING CAPACITY

Penn’s enterprise license permits up to 300 participants per meeting, for an unlimited number of meetings. If you need to invite more than 300 participants, contact itshelp@law.upenn.edu.

How do I find other Zoom users in the central Penn Zoom Service?

In order to contact or invite other Penn Zoom users to meetings, you will need to use their Zoom user ID, which will also be in the format of PennKey@upenn.edu.

You will also need to use PennKey@upenn.edu to access other collaborative features, such as inviting other Zoom users to serve as alternative hosts, granting scheduling privileges or pre-assigning Zoom users to breakout rooms.

 

Why can’t I find a user in the central Penn Zoom Service?

Zoom has been implemented in different ways across the University, and not all schools and centers have joined Penn’s new central Zoom service. Users in schools and centers that have not yet moved to the new central Zoom service will not be “findable” in https://upenn.zoom.us/.

You will be able to invite these users to meetings by using their email address. However, you will not be able to use many of Zoom’s collaborative features.
