Overall Satisfaction with Zoom

Faculty are using it for classes and meetings; staff are using it for meetings to bring people in remotely and to record; students use it in classes and for group projects.
  • 25 attendees show up on each screen, my faculty LOVE to be able see all the students in their classes. It's one of the main reasons we use Zoom.
  • Breakout rooms is the other big reason for using Zoom in our classes - they are a great instructional tool!
  • It just works!
  • Chat should be in one central location.
  • Recording in breakout rooms!
  • My faculty and I lose the Zoom windows all the time! I'd love to see a fix to that.
  • Zoom has had a huge impact on our classes using video conferencing - the use of Zoom minimizes the barrier of technology more than any other technology I use. People connect with each other, teach and learn and collaborate seamlessly. It's a beautiful thing.
  • The ease of use that Zoom offers has improved our culture of remote inclusion in meetings. If only the whole university system would adopt it!
  • For our training sessions, it is now a common practice to include a Meeting ID in invitations and send out recordings as well.
We selected Zoom over two other FREE products because of its reliability and rich features (breakout rooms). Blackboard Collaborate has not been reliable for us, though other institutions in the university system have no issues with it and love it. Skype is moving to Teams which makes it far less accessible and YuJa video conference is terrible. Zoom just works.
We love Zoom for teaching synchronous classes and engaging students - Zoom removes so many barriers!
We find that we do not use Zoom unless someone is joining a meeting or a class remotely.
