About Zoom at IU

Zoom is a web collaboration tool available to all Indiana University students, faculty, and staff. A regular Zoom meeting can support up to 100 simultaneous participants, while a large meeting can support up to 300 participants. Zoom also includes a webinar tool for very large meetings or classes. Zoom provides high-quality audio and video, intuitive sharing and co-annotation tools, breakout rooms, whiteboarding tools, the ability to easily add content to a meeting on the fly, and the option to download meeting recordings as MP4 files.

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.


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.
