Zoom provides video conferencing, screen sharing and messaging across any device.

Getting Started

Zoom is free for anyone invited to attend a meeting. If you'd like to host a meeting for your class or college-related business see below.

About Zoom Accounts

  • A Zoom account is only required if you want to host a meeting. You do not need an account to attend a meeting.

  • Zoom Pro accounts allow for meetings longer than 40 minutes and can host up to 300 participants.
    • Pro accounts can be auto-provisioned in Canvas for instructors or requested at help.evergreen.edu.
