Zoom: Online lectures and meetings

zoom

During your course of study, you may be required to participate in synchronous online lectures/tutorials/meetings.  Or if you are an external student, your lecturer may live stream the lecture, so you can join in if you are free on that day, and at the time of the lecture on campus.  Tabor uses Zoom  for such online meetings, and live streaming of lectures.

Your lecturer will advise you when the meeting, or lecture, is, and will send you the link to access the online meeting space. 


Zoom Test

Feel free to test out Zoom using this Zoom meeting test link - it will start a meeting with you so you can see how it all works - there will be a small download of the Zoom program the first time you use it.
