Web Conferencing


Zoom, a cloud-based technology, allows faculty, staff and students to have interactions in real time from their computers, laptops, or mobile devices. Zoom's web-based conferencing uses video and audio and is accessible on MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android mobile devices.

All Appalachian users (faculty, staff and students) have the ability to host online meetings with up to 100 participants.
