Our Moodle Moment focuses on a synchronous tool this time, as we take a look at Zoom. Zoom is a lightweight videoconferencing and screensharing tool supported by the AEAs. Similar to Skype, it allows multiple users and easy recording.
While there is a paid version that allows you to have longer meetings (> 1 hour), the free version also the same basic features. It integrates with phone conferencing, and participants do not need an account to join a meeting (not even a free account).
Below is the complete overview of the video and all its features back when we first started using the tool in March.
