Zoom quick-start guide
Zoom is a video conferencing application that allows you to meet with students online when you cannot meet in-person. It can be used for one-on-one meetings such as office hours, small classes, and even large classes. By default, Zoom will allow you to meet with up to 300 students. To request a larger meeting, contact Cornell IT.
