Learning, Teaching & Working Continuity

What is Zoom?

Zoom is a video-conferencing platform for which NEOMED owns a license. Zoom allows you to engage in live Web conversations with your students using audio, video, and text-based chat features.

Unlike a video-conferencing program like Skype or Google Hangouts, you do not need a unique username or account to use Zoom. Instead, your NEOMED ID and password will allow you to generate a link (much like you might for an Office 365 Document) and a phone number that you can share with anyone. Participants can then follow the web link or call the phone number to join in on a live conversation.

You can access NEOMED Zoom in three different ways:

  1. Download the NEOMED Zoom application
  2. Visit neomed.zoom.us and log-in with your NEOMED ID and password. From there, you can download the essential software application and create future meeting links.
  3. Integrate Zoom into your AIMS site. If you use AIMS extensively, you can follow the NEOMED AIMS team’s instructions for creating a direct link for Zoom that directly integrates into your AIMS course site.
