Zoom is an application that can be downloaded either on your computer or mobile device. You can request a demo and even download it for free, but it’s worth noting that there are limitations to the free model in comparison to the other price schemes.

You can use Zoom for online classes by signing up and downloading the app for free. Zoom can be downloaded on either PC, Mac, Android or iOS, and up to 100 people can join an online class/meeting in the free model.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, an account will need to be created and you can make one using an already existing Google or Facebook profile. When creating an account, simply follow the onscreen prompts to complete the process.
