Zoom is a web-based video conferencing service for collaborating with others online. It is available across multiple platforms such as desktop and mobile. Your instructor may be using Zoom to hold classes online. You can also use Zoom to meet with your classmates for group projects or study groups.

See the Zoom Resource Site for Carleton Students for more instructions and resources to help you get started with zoom.
