Zoom is a live web-conferencing tool used for real-time communication and collaboration between participants (also referred to as synchronous meetings). Zoom meetings can be recorded. Zoom allows for up to 300 people to join in a meeting at a time, using a computer, webcam, mobile device or phone.  It will have the largest draw on bandwidth and requires a stable internet connection. Participants can turn off their webcams (to lower pull on bandwidth).
