Zoom Rooms at Cornell
Zoom Rooms is software installed in classrooms, conference rooms, and other meeting spaces that allows audio conferencing, wireless screen sharing, and video conferencing.
"Zoom Rooms" are a new dedicated classroom technology from Zoom that give instructors the option to better coordinate their visual collaboration—video screen sharing, whiteboards, and annotation resources—in a Zoom-enabled classroom. Zoom Room systems are being provided in spaces where instructors are teaching in-person with remote student participants.
Zoom Room systems differ from standard Zoom personal meeting setups. While the personal Zoom software allows instructors to schedule meetings, manage attendees, and share content, Zoom Rooms pull together the visual collaboration features of a teaching space into one application.
Typical Campus Zoom Room Setup
In a typical Cornell classroom use, the Zoom Room software runs on a dedicated computer in the teaching space.
Instructors connect their laptop to the classroom system using the labeled HDMI and USB cables provided.
Using Zoom Rooms, instructors have the ability to:
Join a course Zoom meeting with the Zoom Room;
See class participants in a dedicated Zoom “gallery” view, even while sharing your screen;
Use an additional dedicated camera to capture and share physical blackboards and whiteboards;
Annotate a presentation shared from the instructor’s connected laptop;
Use streamlined and simplified digital annotation and whiteboarding; and
Mirror your iPad to Zoom Rooms for additional digital whiteboarding options.
