Getting ready for a Zoom Meeting? Download the web client here.
When you join a Zoom meeting or webinar on your Windows or Mac computer from an email invitation, you will be using a small piece of software from Zoom. If you do not have this on your computer already, you will be prompted to download it after clicking the link in the email invitation. It's a quick download, but if you'd like to download the app beforehand, just to save time and be better prepared, you can do so.
If you are participating in a meeting, but are not hosting it, you do not need to sign up for a Zoom account within the Canisius College license.
Host a Zoom Meeting or Webinar
Canisius College pays for a Zoom license that grants faculty and staff at the College a Pro account. This is useful if you must conduct meetings over 40 minutes, or have more options to record them. If you do not have a Pro Zoom account, click the button on the right to request one. Allow several business days for this account to be created.
