San Jose State University uses Zoom for web conferencing. Zoom includes an instant message tool which expands communication options for students and faculty members.
Each iSchool student and faculty member has their own Pro Zoom account. Pro account users can host unlimited meetings. Meeting participants do not have to be affiliated with SJSU nor do they have to have Zoom accounts to join a meeting. Zoom can host meetings with up to 300 participants.
Recordings can be made in the Zoom meetings and saved to the host’s computer. Faculty members also have an option to record to the cloud.
You should not set up an individual account at zoom.us. Always use sjsu.zoom.us for access in order to enjoy the benefits of the Pro account SJSU has provided you.
Setting Up Your Zoom Account
All SJSU students and faculty members have Zoom Pro accounts. Your account offers you the ability to host – and record -meetings with no time limit. You have a personal meeting “room” with a link and meeting ID that you can customize for ad-hoc/instant meetings. Meetings are also fully accessible with the Live Transcript feature enabled during your session (see step 6).
Securing Zoom Meetings
