Web Conferencing with Zoom

All Georgetown faculty, staff and students are eligible to receive licensed Zoom Pro accounts. This allows for 300 attendees in all Zoom meeting rooms.

Faculty can use the Zoom Conferencing tool in Canvas to schedule meetings with students and hold online office hours. Students (and faculty too) can use Zoom outside of Canvas to create and host their own meetings.

Zoom regularly provides updates to the Zoom desktop client and mobile app. This often brings new features, functionality, security patches and bug fixes to the app and client. We recommend always updating Zoom to the latest version once it is available.
