  • Collaborate from nearly anywhere with HD video and high quality audio
  • Share your screen, annotate documents, or use a digital whiteboard 
  • Poll your audience or monitor attention of participants
  • Record your meetings and auto-generate transcripts
  • Offer online office hours to your students using a virtual waiting room
  • Request remote control of another person's computer to provide technical assistance
  • Plan and host webinars, including registration, and post-event reporting

Zoom can be used in your office, at home, on your mobile device, or in select conference and classrooms around the UA Health Sciences. UAHS Zoom is also integrated with UA D2L to facilitate synchronous online course sessions or breakout groups.

Testing Your Computer/Device With Zoom

Using Zoom

UAHS Zoom offers end-to-end encryption of all meetings and presentation content but it is not yet approved for use with sensitive data such as PHI regulated by HIPAA. We are working with Zoom and the UA Privacy and Security Offices to address this and will announce its availability when it is in place. In the meantime, if you need a solution for meetings containing sensitive data, please contact Steve Machtley for assistance.

Zoom and D2L

The navigation bar for courses in UAHS D2L departments should now show UA Tools Health Sciences. Under that menu you will find Zoom for Instructors UAHS.  Using this link to book your online class meetings will automatically use your personal UAHS Zoom Pro account.  It will also put a link to your online meeting in your course calendar.  See picture below:
