Zoom is a high quality video and audio online conferencing tool for desktops, tablets and smartphones.
Zoom Meeting is an easy-to-use high-definition virtual meeting solution designed to meet the needs of today’s mobile enabled students. Zoom Meeting is ideal for online classes, meetings, special events, webinars, distance learning, group work, breakout rooms, collaboration, research supervision and collaboration, mentoring and even job interviews.
Sign in at zoom.uts.edu.au using your UTS student number (or staff number if you are a member of staff) and usual IT password.
When you use Zoom for the first time, you will be asked to ‘Accept’ that your information can be shared with utsmeet.zoom.us. Once you’ve accepted, you can download and install the Zoom Meeting Client on to your computer.
To log in to the Zoom desktop client or mobile app:
- Select 'Sign in with SSO'
- Enter the company domain as 'utsmeet.zoom.us'
- Enter your UTS student or staff ID and IT password
Only staff and students using their UTS ID and password will be admitted to UTS meetings and classes straight away.
Guests without UTS logins, such as guest speakers, are directed to a Zoom waiting room where they must wait for the meeting host to admit them once their identity has been verified. Guests still need a Zoom account to participate - it's free to sign up.
Note: If a student or staff member accidentally logs in with a personal account, or Facebook or Google details, they will also be sent to the Zoom waiting room.
The Cloud Recording option in the meeting settings will allow you to record the Zoom meetings on the AARNET CloudStor. After processing, Zoom will send an email from CloudStor with a link to recording and password to access it. Users must have a CloudStor account to access their past recordings. If they are logging in to CloudStor for the first time, recordings will not be available. They need to make another recording before they can see the 'Zoom Recordings' folder in 'Shared with You' section within the CloudStor account. Users can sign in online at cloudstor.aarnet.edu.au using UTS student or staff number and UTS password.
