CSS is now offering Zoom, a powerful web conferencing and screencasting application. Zoom offers most of the features of Adobe Connect while providing the flexibility and ease of use offered by Google Hangouts. Zoom may be used for class sessions, student collaborations, meetings, guest speakers or any other environment where you need to connect participants from different locations. We are eager to help you to learn to use Zoom and get your feedback on how you use Zoom and your experiences in the Zoom environment.
Every CSS user can set up a Basic Account. Pro Accounts are also available. Review the account features grid above to determine if you need a Pro account.
