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 colleagues, students, and faculty using audio, video, and text-based chat features. It's also available for use from your Brightspace course offerring site. Using your Marist account you can generate a link that can be shared with participants who can then follow the web link to join in on a live conversation.
