Overall Satisfaction with Zoom

Zoom is our recommended solution for all audio & video teleconferencing needs. Zoom is available to faculty, staff, and students at the University. Zoom allows our university to further our mission of academic excellence by providing the ability to facilitate meetings between users on and off campus, by creating a reliable solution for distance learning, and by giving faculty the ability to hold high quality webinars, while being very cost effective and user friendly.
  • Host, Schedule, and Join Meetings
  • Zoom Rooms provide professional quality conferences
  • Easy to use, easy to manage
  • Reporting capabilities could be more detailed
  • zoom has allowed our IT department to remotely verify identities, allowing for procedures that would need photo ID in person to be done over a distane
  • webex
Zoom and WebEx are both videoconferencing solutions. The big difference is the cost of zoom compared to the cost of WebEx. our organization was able to reinvest the money we saved by switching to zoom into other programs across campus, furthering our ability to stay relevant in this ever evolving technical world
Zoom is well suited for daily meetings, whether that is online office hours between faculty and staff, or a business meeting with one of our satellite campuses. Zoom Webinars provide the ability for faculty to invite specialists in their respective fields around the world to be apart of their classroom, giving students opportunities they would not normally have.
