Zoom Web Meetings

South Alabama is now using Zoom for online conferencing and web-based meetings. This software replaces WebEx and BigBlueButton, and gives South Alabama users new and familiar features in multi-user online communications. Some of these solutions include real-time HD video and audio, up to 300 meeting participants at once, real-time annotation, meeting scheduling that syncs with online calendar services, live video recording, team chat, and more! 

Zoom is available for all USA faculty, staff, and students to use and can be accessed directly from the USA Zoom portal (https://southalabama.zoom.us/). Zoom can also be integrated directly into courses in Canvas.  South Alabama users are already established in the system and can log in with their Jag Number and JagMail password.
