As part of our efforts to better support the needs of Hybrid and Online instruction, ATSI has expanded our licensing to provide Zoom Pro accounts for all current faculty, staff, and students. Instructors may choose either Zoom or Teams for their sychronous instruction needs depending on which best fits their instructional style.
To access your Zoom Pro license, you will need to sign up for an account at Zoom.us using your UP email address- you will receive prompts to join our account. For more information, view these step-by-step instructions to set-up a UP Zoom account. You can also use this process to convert a previous free or personally paid Pro account to the University plan, giving you access to the full features at no cost to you.
Finally, Zoom has announced important updates to security settings- which will take effect on September 27th, 2020- mandating the use of either the waiting room or a meeting passcode. Visit their support site to learn more. We highly encourage you to get familiar with and start using these features on your own ahead of the change to maximize the security for your meetings and class sessions.
