In December 2018, EITS will be introducing zoom video communications to the UGA community. Zoom is a video communications platform that features a cloud service for video and audio conferencing, chat and webinars across mobile devices, desktops telephones and room systems. Zoom helps businesses and organizations bring their team together.
EITS is bringing the Zoom platform to all students, faculty and staff. It is a new and innovative way of conducting courses and group assemblies online to improve communications across UGA campuses. An important characteristic of this rollout is that OITs will have greater control for technical support management of sub accounts and customizing settings. If you are interested in a Zoom license please contact your OIT.
To help make the transition take place efficiently, TeamDynamix will be used for initial onboarding of individual departments. This platform will also be used to create and manage MOUs. Any role change request, MOU or offboarding procedures will be handled through Team Dynamix.
There is a tentative schedule for rollout of the zoom platform listed below. This schedule is subject to change.
