Zoom combines video conferencing, online meetings and in-conference group chat into one easy-to-use tool that is ideal for KU conference rooms and online meetings with external partners. Zoom at KU allows for video, audio and content sharing among up to 300 participants on most devices, including Windows and Mac computers, Android and iOS devices, and KU video conferencing room systems (e.g., Polycom).
