Zoom is a very easy to use and feature-rich video conferencing tool. It’s ability to integrate with our Learning Management System (Canvas) and Google Suite makes Zoom our platform of choice. In recent weeks, a number of Zoom security concerns have come to light. The vendor has been responsive and has added security features to augment the safety of your meetings. To ensure that we are leveraging these safety features, please review the following security items.
Register yourself for an Arcadia Zoom Account by using your Arcadia username and password. This allows you to be authenticated automatically (if you are logged into Zoom) and skip the waiting room for Arcadia hosted meetings.
Once you see your Zoom Profile page, you have created your account and can now close the page
Do Not Share Passwords and Zoom Links
Only share Zoom meeting links with your intended audience, don't put them somewhere publicly accessible. Do not share personal meeting IDs, passwords, or advertise the link widely in social media, newsletters, etc..
Zoom events for large groups including outside guests that need to be publicized should be scheduled as a webinar. See below for the decsription on Zoom Webinars.
Update your Zoom Application
Make sure your Zoom application is up to date. Zoom has released a number of security updates and will continue to do so. To ensure that your application and meeting experience is as secure as possible, please update your version of the Zoom application before your next scheduled session.
