Distance Library Services: Zoom

Zoom Web Conferencing

Appalachian's web conferencing tool, Zoom, allows students to meet virtually. Web conferencing allows anyone with a computer and Internet connection or a mobile device with the app installed to interact with two-way audio, video, chat, screen sharing, breakout rooms, recording, and more. All Appstate students have Zoom 'Pro' accounts, and are able to use this product, both to host and to attend meetings.

You can use Zoom web conferencing tools to:

  • Create online study rooms of up to 50 participants from a computer or mobile device
  • "Winterize your study group" and meet virtually during inclement weather
  • Bring in guest speakers from distant locations, including those external to the University
  • Hold virtual study group hours
  • Students can access Zoom via AppState's custom landing page or via the Zoom Mobile apps
  • Use the Zoom Help Center for short how-to videos for practically everything. 
  • If you have questions about Zoom related to a service at Appalachian, please call Tech Support at 828-262-6266 or, for more complex questions or teaching issues, fill out a support ticket with as much detail as possible.
  • Reference the campus Zoom Confluence page for full instructions on how to access and use Zoom.
