What Does Zoom Do?

Meeting Rooms
With a 300-person meeting room capacity, you can schedule different URLs for each meeting you host or use your Personal Meeting ID as a persistent meeting location. Show me the video or read more.

Microphone and Telephone Audio
If you can’t use the amazing audio quality of a microphone, enjoy the option to dial-in or have Zoom call your phone. There is no charge to use the telephone service. Show me the video or read more.

Video
If your camera and internet connection can handle it, you’ll enjoy HD quality video. Don’t have a HD camera or a “super-fast” connection to the Internet? No worries, Zoom will accommodate you. Show me the video or read more.

Recordings
Employees enjoy the ability to record their meetings to Zoom’s cloud service or their own computer. Recordings stored on Zoom’s cloud service will stick around for 365 days before they are deleted automatically. Students can record meetings to Zoom’s cloud service too, but they only hang around for 180 days. Show me the video or read more.

Kaltura MediaSpace Integration
For easier sharing or D2L integration, employees can send Zoom cloud recordings directly to their Kaltura MediaSpace account automatically:

  1. W​hen you record a Zoom meeting as a host it will save into your Kaltura MediaSpace automatically
  2. Go to your MediaSpace library and log in with your StarID
  3. Find the video under ‘My Media’ – you can share it, add captions or edit it online!

Screen Sharing and Whiteboards
Why tell, when you can show! Share your computer screen or annotate on a whiteboard. If you are used to uploading a file within a meeting that will be displayed to participants, sorry, you’ll have to share your screen instead. Show me the video or read more about screen sharing and whiteboards.

Breakout Rooms
Do you want to facilitate small group discussion? Breakout rooms are there to rescue you. Show me the video or read more.

Mobile Device Support
In addition to traditional Win/Mac versions, Zoom has covered all major mobile platforms including iPhones/iPads using iOS, Androids, Chromebooks using ChromeOS. Even our Linux users will be happy! Show me the video or read more.

Calendar Integration
Add the Zoom plugin to your Outlook account and add a Zoom meeting location right from your calendar invitation. Show me the video or read more.

Zoom Help Center

You can request assistance directly from Zoom 24/7, including public holidays, where agents or technical engineers are available for email or live support. You can also find self-service guides at the Zoom Help Center or watch some of the Zoom Video Tutorials. If you need something more directed, attend one of live training sessions provided by Zoom. Pick a date/time that works for your schedule.

You can also always request assistance via the Minnesota State Service Desk.
