Welcome to the UCTL ET informational page for using ZOOM 

Zoom Video Communications is a remote conferencing services company headquartered in San Jose, California, US. It provides a remote conferencing service that combines video conferencing, online meetings, chat, and mobile collaboration. It is similar to the Stream in TEAMS and can be managed without much effort.  Zoom will be a part of LMS Moodle this fall and can be added as a tool in your current TEAM.

Live Training

Using PPT in One Drive to provide Closed Captioning in Zoom

Use PPT in O365 to provide Closed Captioning

Because Zoom doesn't have an easy answer for providing closed captioning and because our goal is to be a UDL campus, we have found a way to provide the closed captioning when you are meeting with your students live.  You can use the Office 365 PowerPoint to provide a live closed captioning within your sessions.  This tutorial will show you how easy it is to provide closed captioning without the cost of a third party program.

Sharing Files in ZOOM

Join a Meeting


When using Zoom, the default is set for Zoom to Mirror what your camera displays. This can cause you to be a little ‘off’ when working with your students, especially when you use words or numbers in the image.  You can change this in Zoom. 

Click on the Video ^ arrow. Click on Video settings.  Choose video in the settings option.  And ‘unclick’ the Mirror my Video.
