Zoom

This page provides links to software and instructions for Zoom, which is required for all students to utilize to meet with teachers and peers for instruction. 

Notice to Tech Admins: For those using Chromebooks, the new “Zoom for Chrome PWA” is separate from the ChromeOS app, and is replacing it. According to Zoom, support for ChromeOS apps are being phased out across all operating systems by November 5, 2022. Tech admins must migrate users from the ChromeOS app to the new Zoom for Chrome PWA. Not doing so could cause students’ Zoom sessions to be abruptly ended when the Respondus Lockdown Browser is launched to take an exam, among other issues.

Notice to Tech Admins: For those using the Zoom Client software, you’ll also want to review the updated ZOOM Software Quarterly Lifecycle Policy.
