Conferencing 

Zoom 

Zoom is an easy to use video conferencing service available to all UF students, faculty, and staff that allows for meetings of up to 300 participants. Zoom is also available in Canvas for instructors to use in their courses. 

 

Teams 

Microsoft Teams is a persistent chat-based collaboration platform complete with document sharing, online meetings, and many more extremely useful features for business and classroom communications. It is included with the Office 365 platform available to Faculty and Staff. 

 

Zoom Webinars ($) 

Zoom Webinars are a useful, secure tool for hosting live events tailored for a wide public audience. Webinars are view-only. This means only hosts and panelists share audio, video, and content with the attendees. 

 

Google Meet 

Google Meet is similar to zoom, but completely browser based. Create a “Meet” with a unique link, and up to 300 people may join.
