Video Conferencing and Web Conferencing Service

Zoom, a cloud-based video conferencing service, is now available to use on campus. This eLearning tool provides easy-to-use, high-definition video/audio conferencing to faculty and students on almost any device.

Zoom Webinar Licensing

Our campus license does not include Zoom Webinar.  Webinar licenses can be purchased by a department for an annual fee based on the number of attendees expected.  The license is associated with a specific user account.  So a department may need multiple licenses if they will have multiple coordinators. 

To request a license, email help@smu.edu with the following information:  user ID number who will be the webinar host, org number for charges, and the type of license you need.

Seats; Annual Cost
