Zoom for desktop and mobile is a platform for video conferencing, recording meetings, chatting, screen sharing, and more. Zoom’s robust Breakout Rooms allow you to split your meeting up into 50 different sessions, ideal for team and project-based classes and meetings.

Zoom has several engagement features, including setting your own virtualized background image, breakout rooms, polling, and nonverbal feedback. Take advantage of a seamless Chrome extension integration to make easy-to-schedule meetings straight from your Google calendar with a click of a button.
