Zoom Knowledge Base

Zoom is UTHSC's official web conferencing application available to all faculty, staff, and students to host online meetings for UTHSC-related business and courses.

Zoom is very user-friendly and intuitive software. Most users find that they don't need any formal training to get started using the basic features of Zoom. We suggest visiting Zoom's online support center to access training videos and helpful tutorials prior to using the application for the first time.
