Important information for SAS faculty using Zoom for remote teaching

On this page, we'll review some details about how SAS faculty can use Zoom to support remote teaching:

  2. Students are eligible for Zoom accounts and encouraged to setup their accounts as soon as possible
  3. Typical uses for Zoom
  4. Schedule Zoom meetings and share recordings through Canvas

Get started: create an account, login, install the Zoom program

  • Login at  http://zoom.sas.upenn.edu  Click the link that says, Click here to log in with your PennKey.
    • If you didn't already have a Zoom account, one will be created automatically when you login.
    • If you get a message saying that you are not eligible for a Zoom account, but you think you should be, please return to http://zoom.sas.upenn.edu and complete the form at the bottom of the page.
  • You can run Zoom from your web browser, but we highly recommend using the Zoom program to get full functionality and best performance.
