Get Going with Zoom Training

Register Now For Our Upcoming Training Sessions on May 6, 11 & 19.

The UWI has adopted Zoom as its new enterprise web-conferencing tool for teaching and learning, replacing Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. To accommodate the transition, this workshop is designed to expose faculty with immediate requirements for getting started with the Zoom application and integrating it into their myeLearning courses. 

What is Zoom? 

Zoom is a web conferencing tool that includes a white board, annotation tools, chat, and the ability to share slides or other applications running on your computer. Additionally, teaching sessions can be recorded and shared across the myeLearning environment. With Zoom, faculty will be able to conduct online teaching presentations, one-on-one meetings, group chats and many more. The integration will make it easy for faculty to schedule, share and start their online teaching sessions in their myeLearning courses.

  • · the steps involved in activating your Zoom account,

  • · adding the Zoom activity in myeLearning.
