Zoom is a cloud-based platform for video and audio conferencing, mobile collaboration, and simple online meetings. Zoom's web-based conferencing uses high-quality video and audio and is accessible on MacOS, Windows, iOS and Android mobile devices. Additionally, Zoom can be used with conventional phone lines for audio conferencing. Finally, this online platform can also connect to existing Polycom, LifeSize, and similar devices.
Zoom support is available for CSUSB students, faculty and staff by the Technology Support Center and training will be offered by ITS Training Team on a regular basis.

How do I record a Zoom meeting?
Zoom meetings can be recorded from the desktop applications. To do so:
Click the Record button in the main video window. By default, only a host can record a meeting. A host can allow other meeting participants to record through the Participants pop-up menu. Click Participants, then hover over a user’s name and click More and then Allow Record to let that user record the meeting.
*Note: You will have to keep Zoom open after the meeting is over to allow it to process and save the video file. A progress bar will appear after you leave the meeting to show you how long this will take.
