About Zoom at IU

Zoom is a web collaboration tool available to all Indiana University students, faculty, and staff. Zoom provides high-quality audio and video, intuitive sharing and co-annotation tools, breakout rooms, whiteboarding tools, the ability to easily add content to meetings "on the fly", and the option to download meeting recordings as MP4 files. Standard Zoom meetings support up to 100 simultaneous participants. Licenses for large meetings (up to 500 participants) and webinars (up to 3,000 participants) are available to faculty and staff by request from the IU Zoom administrators.

Zoom integrates into Canvas as an external tool, and has apps for all platforms, including fully featured iOS and Android apps. Zoom's high-quality video and recording features also allow for recording simple videos with a webcam.

If you will host meetings that contain any type of personal health information (PHI), whether or not the meeting is recorded, you must use a Zoom Health account.

Anyone who has the meeting URL can attend a Zoom meeting even if they aren't affiliated with IU; however, only those in the IU community can create Zoom accounts and schedule meetings. Non-IU attendees count towards the 100 person meeting maximum.
