Zoom has been SMU’s video conference system of choice for a couple of years now, and plenty of you have taken advantage of its ease of use and stellar call quality. Recently, Zoom released an update to their desktop client, and here are some highlights of what’s new!
You may already know that Zoom is an excellent way to conduct online meetings and webinars, but did you also know that it can also be an easy tool for quickly recording your screen and audio? All you need is the Zoom Meetings Client and a microphone! This comes in handy if you need to make a quick instructional video or visually document an issue or process.

Whether you work in an office, a classroom, or a study room, meetings can take up a lot of your time. Video conferencing solutions have been around for many years and have helped make meetings less of a production and more about getting things done.
SMU now offers video conference services to all students, faculty, and staff with Zoom! Instead of having to go to a special room with confusing specialty hardware; anyone with a laptop, smartphone, or tablet can start or join a meeting with anyone in the world. You can also share your computer screen for presentations and chat via text, audio, or video with your attendees.
Getting started is super easy. Just head to smu.edu/zoom and click the log in button! Once there, you can download Zoom’s software to your computer or mobile device and start meeting. If you need any pointers on how to get started, Zoom provides excellent documents and videos to help.
So next time you need to organize a business meeting, study group, or online presentation, give Zoom a try!
Important update about GoToMeeting
Effective immediately, users of GoToMeeting will need to transition any scheduled conferences to our new video and web conferencing service, Zoom. This transition is due to a technical error with GoToMeeting forcing us to transition to Zoom earlier than expected. For more information, please see Teaching & Video/Audio Conferencing with Zoom.
Upcoming webinars impacted
If you have recently registered on GoToMeeting hosted by SMU, you will need to re-register on our new webinar system, Zoom.
