Zoom is one of the videoconference applications available on KI computers, along with Skype and Microsoft Teams. We recommend using Zoom because a) it requires less Internet bandwidth than other similar apps, b) it allows participants to join a meeting by phone if the Internet is not stable enough and c) you already have a Zoom account associated to your KI email address.
In this article, you will learn how to configure Zoom using your KI email address, get an overview of the functionalities of the app and find a link to learning resources on the Zoom website.
The first time you launch Zoom on your KI computer, you will have to sign in using your KI username and password.
