Zoom is a real-time video conferencing tool that can be used for live, online tutorials. It allows you talk with students, share screens, text chat and capture a recording of your session.
There are a limited number of full licences at ECU, that have been designated to allow for Zoom sessions of unlimited length and unlimited participant numbers. All other staff will have access to a basic Zoom licences that allows for 40-minute meetings and up to 100 participants.
The basic Zoom licence will be applied by default to ECU users when they login to Zoom for the first time, using ecu.zoom.us and login via SSO (single sign-on). Existing users of Zoom that no longer have the full licence will automatically downgrade to a basic licence (click on your profile in Zoom to determine your licence type). A Participant does not require a Zoom account nor licence in order to join a meeting and can join for free.
Staff are encouraged to use the University’s preferred platform for video conferencing, Microsoft Teams. For teaching and learning purposes, staff are advised to use Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.
If you have requirements that cannot be met by either Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, Microsoft Teams or the Zoom basic licence, please contact the IT Service Desk on +61 8 6304 6000 or firstname.lastname@example.org
