This article is intended to provide you information for how to create your Zoom login, Download the application, and Sign-In.  Then, there will be links to multiple resources directly from Zoom to assist you with all of the features and options of the Zoom environment.

Downloading the Zoom Application


While you can run Zoom directly from any modern browser your experience may be better and you'll have access to more options if you download the application.  You can download the Zoom application on your Windows, Mac OS, Chrome OS, iOS, or Android device.  Visit https://zoom.us/support/download to download the correct client for your device.  You can also download the application from your mobile device's app store.  Please note there may be additional steps to follow when installing on Mac OS.

Staff may also desire to download the Zoom for Outlook Plugin to schedule meetings directly from Outlook.  Instructions to do that can be found here, and the signing in for the Zoom plugin is the same as the following steps for signing in to your Zoom account.  For a guide on how to use the Zoom for Outlook Plugin, click this link.
