Zoom is a tool available in iLearn used for web conferencing and facilitates real-time online communication and collaboration.  You can use Zoom to record a lecture, recording your desktop/ online workspace and the webcam. To do this just start a meeting with no other attendees and hit record. Once you stop recording Zoom will automatically create an MP4 video file that can then be shared with students or uploaded to Echo360 or added to your course in iLearn

Zoom is very simple to use and offers a wide variety of opportunities for learning and teaching such as real-time online tutorials, virtual consultations with students or including an external guest speaker in a lecture etc.

You can use Zoom to:

  • provide video and voice communication
  • text chat
  • screen sharing and annotation
  • interactive whiteboard
  • poll
  • breakout rooms
  • record your meeting
