Zoom and iLearn

Zoom and iLearn

Marist College has added an additional web conferencing platform: Zoom.  This application works similarly to our existing platform, Cisco Webex.  Each platform allows you to video conference with your colleagues, students, and faculty while also available for your use from your iLearn course site. 

What is Zoom?

Zoom is a video-conferencing platform for which Marist College owns a license. Zoom allows you to engage in live Web conversations with your students using audio, video, and text-based chat features.

Using your Marist account and password will allow you to generate a link that you can share with participants can then follow the web link to join in on a live conversation.

Using Zoom in two different ways:

  1. Visit the web-based application from the Marist Zoom website to set up your account or create future meeting links.

  2. Integrate Zoom into your iLearn site. If you use iLearn extensively, you can follow Digital Education team’s instructions for creating a direct link for Zoom that directly integrates into your iLearn course site.
