MSU has signed a hosting and licensing agreement with the Zoom cloud-based web conferencing platform. This agreement was the culmination of a partnership between several colleges on campus and IT Services.
Zoom’s web-based conferencing uses high-quality video and audio for web conferencing and is accessible on a variety of platforms including Macs, PCs, iOS, and Android devices.
Additionally, Zoom can be used with conventional phone lines for audio conferencing as well as Polycom, Tandberg, LifeSize, and other similar conferencing devices.
The Basic Zoom service is available for faculty, staff, and students at no cost, but is limited to 40-minute duration meetings.
Two enhanced licenses are sold through the MSU Computer Store online or in the Computer Center at 450 Auditorium Road, Room 110.
The Zoom-Standard license costs $30/year and allows meetings with up to 25 participants and no meeting duration limit.
The Zoom-Extended license costs $99/year for up to 100 participants with no meeting duration limit.
Users invited to participate in a meeting do not need a license. Only hosts are required to have an account license.
