Zoom is a video conferencing product that all Pepperdine students and faculty are licensed to use. This site is great for joining or hosting meetings, workspaces and webinars–whether it be for attending a remote class lecture or creating a personal audio/video chat.

In terms of compatible equipment, Zoom is compatible with basic i3 Windows 10 and Mac OS X with Mac OS 10.10 and higher. You may use Zoom with an integrated web cam and built-in audio system, or with any mid-range webcam and USB headset. A good approach is to standardize using a USB headset as this will avoid a number of variables that can cause problems for your audio functionality. There is no need to spend a lot of money for very good functionality. We have had great success with Logitech, Sennheiser, and Plantronics brands that range from around $20 up to around $50.
A minimum link of 2 mb (download) is recommended for Zoom usage, yet 600k is a functional minimum. To test your link speed, please visit speedtest.net or click on the link provided.
