The Zoom meeting service is only available in certain cases for the teaching in Liberal Adult Education. In other Omnia usecases, Microsoft Teams is used for online meetings.
In the Zoom online meeting service, it is possible to:
- talk to participants and hear them.
- type in a chat.
- see each other.
- react with emojis.
- share a desktop screen, a specific window, device audio, a whiteboard.
- present a PowerPoint presentation or a video file.
- work in breakout rooms.
- vote in polls.
Zoom has four roles:
Host: The user that scheduled the meeting. They have full permissions to manage the meeting. There can only be one host of a meeting.
Participants: Have the rights given to them by the Host. Typically only using web cameras, microphones, chat and reactions.
Co-hosts: Shares most of the controls that hosts have, allowing the co-host to manage the administrative side of the meeting, such as managing attendees. The host must assign a co-host during the meeting. Co-hosts cannot start a meeting. If a host needs someone else to start the meeting, they can assign an alternative host.
Alternative hosts: Shares the same controls as co-hosts, but can also start the meeting. Hosts can assign alternative hosts when they schedule a meeting.
