The most widely used software available today for video conferencing and online teaching is Zoom. It’s easy and free to use, and allows for all the capabilities you need to effectively teach online. Read on for simple tips on how to use Zoom to teach online.
Reasons Why We Love Zoom for Teaching Classes Online
- Zoom is FREE to use for up to 40 minutes. You can use Zoom on just about any device for free. And for a limited time, Zoom is offering a waiver to K-12 schools to lift the 40-minute limit on Zoom meetings. Take advantage of this hot offer while it lasts!
- Zoom allows for FREE recordings. Have a student who can’t make the class meeting? Set your meetings to auto-record to the Zoom Cloud and invite your students to access them later, on their own time.
- Zoom is the only platform with HD Videos, Screen Sharing AND Virtual Whiteboards. Even industry giant Skype doesn’t have all these features.
