Zoom Zoom


Zoom is an interactive video conferencing tool used by teachers to teach online. Teaching takes place in a meeting where the teacher distributes his presentation material and speaks. The student can also participate in the discussion by talking, sharing material, video linking or chatting. The teacher may have restricted these activities. A student does not need to log in (user account) in Zoom to attend meetings.

The teacher shares the meeting link either in Moodle (Zoom tool or link) or by other means. The meeting ID and Passcode can also be given

Pre-install Zoom before the remote meeting at https://zoom.us/download or allow it to install automatically when you go to the meeting. Browser usage (Chrome / Firefox) is possible, but their features may be flawed (e.g. Whiteboard usage). Therefore, the Zoom app is the most recommended.

Test the sound system for the first time.
