Zoom is now available as an additional web conferencing system to UMD students, faculty, and staff. Zoom unifies web video conferencing, simple online meetings, and group messaging into one easy-to-use platform. To get started, go to the UMD Zoom website at http://umd.zoom.us/ and sign in with your Directory ID and password. Your profile will be automatically created, and you may customize your preferences and settings. The website includes a link with video tutorials about how to use Zoom.   

Zoom is also integrated with ELMS-Canvas, but we recommend that you first configure your account/profile on the UMD Zoom website before you connect from inside ELMS-Canvas for the first time. If you get started from ELMS-Canvas, you may encounter unwanted errors. These documents explain how instructors and students can use Zoom integrated with ELMS-Canvas:

Webex (also integrated with ELMS-Canvas) and Google Hangouts Meet remain available to the UMD community members as options for web conferencing.

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Service Desk.
