Web and Audio Conferencing

Audio Conferencing


Zoom offers phone-only meetings with dial in capabilities (web session not required) and should be used whenever a dial-in audio conference is required. Attendees must call in by phone and cannot use the Zoom app to join. 

As of June 2018, Georgetown University no longer contracts with a dedicated service provider specifically for audio conferencing.
