Pepperdine University has a university-wide site license for the popular video conferencing product, “Zoom”. This site license covers all faculty, staff, and students at Pepperdine.

Note that Zoom is more than just a competitor to other video conferencing products like FaceTime and Skype. It also integrates seamlessly into your Google Calendar if you use Google Chrome for your browser. It also can be used as a telephone alternative and/or a conference phone system… no need to use the video component if you don’t need or want that feature.

Once the Zoom extension for the Chrome Browser is installed, you can call a Zoom meeting right from your Google Calendar! This feature automatically fills in the meeting contact information including optional phone numbers for folks to dial in from a regular phone to participate in your meeting.
