Zoom in Education
Zoom has many functions to support remote learning like breakout rooms, FullHD Screen sharing and the ability to integrate with other video conference technologies such as H.323, SIP, Skype for Business. Zoom also integrates with your Learning Management System via LTI and in some cases specialised to the specific system. User logins in the client and on the Zoom.us website is usually managed via SAML with full mapping to usergroups, rights and features.
