How do I hold a synchronous online meeting / virtual classroom session?
Campus Technology Services (CTS) is offering access to Zoom, a video web conferencing application where many individuals can join the same meeting and share audio and video. It also allows for screen sharing and presentation mode.
Migration of existing Zoom accounts to Single sign-on (SSO) has been completed by CTS. Going forward, when you access Zoom from a web browser, visit https://purchase.zoom.us.
From there you can Join or Host a meeting or Sign in to Zoom through the “Sign in” option using your Purchase College credentials.
