Drexel provides a University-wide license for Zoom, the online meeting and video-conferencing service with built-in collaboration tools and team chat. In addition to HD video, Zoom offers telephone-only conferencing.
The Zoom meeting service is available to students, faculty, and professional staff. When signing in to the service, most users should click "Sign in Standard," but people who need to conduct meetings involving sensitive information can use a secondary account that meets the standards for handling HIPAA information. For meetings that require HIPAA compliance users should click "Sign in HIPAA."
Currently, meetings scheduled in Zoom can be recorded and stored in the cloud, for up to 18 weeks, or locally, to the user's computer. A transcript and closed captions for the video are automatically generated on the cloud recordings. To achieve the same results with locally recorded meetings, the meeting organizer can also download the MP4 file or make it available to others on their Drexel Streams
The Zoom meeting service is tied to DrexelConnect so that users can sign in with their existing Drexel userID and password rather than having to remember a special password that's just for Zoom. Users that would prefer to login to the client directly (as opposed to the web) should select "Sign In SSO" and enter "Drexel" in the company domain field.
