What is Zoom?
Zoom is a tool for hosting online meetings and web conferences. Zoom is provided for free by the State's Chancellor's Office for all Saddleback employees. With Zoom, you can easily host and attend state-of-the-art video meetings right from your desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Use Zoom to give a PowerPoint presentation, demonstrate software, draw on a virtual whiteboard, or just meet virtually using a web cam. It’s also easy to record your Zoom meetings for later use!
