An introduction to using Zoom with your Oxy account.
What is Zoom?
Zoom is an online video conference, meeting, and webinar platform that allows a meeting creator to host a video and/or a computer audio call with anyone, anywhere on any platform. A customer can create a meeting and invite up to 300 participants from around the world to join. As a Zoom Meeting attendee, you can join a meeting from your computer or mobile device using an appropriate Zoom app.
Who can use Zoom?
Occidental Faculty, Students and Staff can use Zoom to create and attend meetings as well as record the meeting’s content for download and future reference.

If you have accessed a zoom meeting in the past or have a zoom account using a different email id, we recommend deleting and reinstalling the desktop app. You can do this from the “Applications folder” on a Mac or from the “Control Panel” on a PC.
