Using Zoom

From classes, office hours, to meetings between campuses, professors at ACU use Zoom extensively and creatively. In most cases, you should be able to use the free account that allows you to host meetings with more than two people for 40 minutes, but if you need a pro account, talk to your department chair to request it.
