Zoom Introducing Zoom for Government!

Zoom is a cloud video conferencing tool that works from either an installed client or from within your browser. We are adding Zoom to our arsenal of learning tools to enable a better learning and instruction experience.

For Instructors

To create Zoom meetings, you need to have a Zoom account. If you don't already have one, please send an email to clehelp@nps.edu to request one.

For students

By default, students and guests don't need to have an account to fully access Zoom. Students can access course meetings from within Sakai, using the Zoom link in the course menu. If you are a guest in a session, the meeting host will send you an invitation to the meeting.
