It is provided free to administrators, staff and faculty of the California Community Colleges system and funded by a grant from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office. Through using Zoom as a conference host or participant, you can share chat, webcam video, screen-share to include using white board tools and applications, conduct meetings, record meetings, and deliver presentations.
