Distance and In-person Hybrid Learning Updates » Zoom for Education

Zoom for Education

Bishop Alemany is pleased to announce that all teachers have been upgraded to Zoom for Education accounts. This enhanced Zoom subscription has many new functions and features that we think will serve to further enrich the distance learning experience. Zoom for Education allows teachers to use polling functions (a quick interactive check-in during lessons) as well as annotation functions (to highlight a worksheet or graphic that is shared on the screen). It also allows teachers to record lessons / lectures and post them to the cloud for student reference and study purposes. Additionally, Zoom for Education allows for a co-hosting feature that will make it easier for deans and administrators to have an increased presence in classes. We are confident that these new features will allow for more in-depth interactions and an increase in resources for students, adding tremendously to the overall distance learning experience.
