Zoom is provided for CU students, faculty and staff at no charge.
How to get it
Current all CU students, faculty and staff have access to Zoom with their NetID and BluePassword. Go to Creighton.zoom.us
- Can I use my Mac or iPhone/iPad with Zoom?
Yes. Zoom is hosted in the cloud and provided as a web-based service, so it can be accessed using a PC, Mac, IOS or Android devices.
- What is the difference between Zoom and Skype for Business?
Zoom is recommended for running online meetings and conferences. It also provides useful and effective collaborative environments online that can be used to engage both students and colleagues. While Skype for Business is recommended as the application of choice for daily communications with your office co-workers and invited non-CU colleagues.
