Zoom Video Conferencing

Zoom is a conferencing software that provides remote access to online meetings, chat and mobile collaboration.  Zoom is available to Adelphi faculty, staff, and students for one-to-one or one-to-many remote meetings.
Please use Zoom for your conferencing needs as we are sunsetting BlueJeans in the first half of 2020, and Adobe Connect is no longer available. If you are looking for an alternative for lecture capturing, Panopto is an option as well.
