Welcome to ED386/ED586 EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY
Zoom is a robust video conferencing application. You will need to download the application and will be instructed to do so when you first follow the link to our virtual Zoom classroom. It is a small file and the download time is minimal. While it is possible to join the virtual classroom via smart phone, I recommend using a computer with audio and video capabilities.
