Zoom is hosting daily live training webinars. Visit Zoom support for more information.
Zoom is a web conferencing service that allows instructors to conduct synchronous, interactive class sessions with students remotely. Share video and your computer screen to lecture and explain course content. Interact with students through annotations, breakout rooms, poll questions, and more. Zoom also allows you to record lectures for students to review later.
At this time, the pilot of Zoom has been extended to Clemson Faculty and Staff for use at home or in office. To access a licensed account, login at https://clemson.zoom.us with your Clemson Credentials. Zoom accounts can be used with the Canvas integration to create and host meetings.

Review the Zoom FAQs
- How do I get a Zoom account?
If you are interested in participating in the Zoom pilot, ITHelp@clemson.edu
- Is there a cost for Zoom?
Anyone can sign up for a free Zoom Basic Account at zoom.us/signup. If you are a faculty member teaching an online or hybrid course in the Spring 2020 term and would like to participate in our Zoom pilot, a Zoom Pro account will be provided free of charge for the duration of the pilot. Please contact ITHelp@clemson.edu for details on how to participate.
- If I am currently paying for a Zoom license and want to participate in the pilot will I receive a refund?
During the pilot, the faculty involved in the pilot will receive a Zoom Pro account free of charge. With that said if you have pre-purchased Zoom licenses for a specified duration (example 1 year), instead of monthly there will be no refunds provided by Zoom. However, should this solution end up being adopted, all current licenses can be merged into the overall license and Zoom will be able to pro-rate the renewal and/or refund unused portions of the year at that point in time.
- What would be the benefit of using the pilot version of Zoom over the version I am currently paying for?
Our pilot will be integrated through the Zoom LTI Pro into our Canvas instance. This will allow you to create meetings through Canvas. Then students will be able to access the meeting directly through Canvas without requiring additional login.
- Are there any difference between the Zoom Basic Account and Zoom Pro Account?
This detailed comparison shows the differences between the accounts.
