TIPS FOR STUDENTS
Students do not need to log into Zoom in order to join a live meeting - to attend office hours, for example - or to watch recorded videos. For live meetings, students just click the link that faculty provide them and follow the prompts on the screen to join.
If students need to conduct their own live or recorded Zoom meetings - to carry out a group project without the professor, for example - then they might want to log into Zoom (with their S&T email address and password) and set up their own meeting space. Basic accounts allow up to 40 minutes of meeting/recording time with up to 100 participants.
Contact the Missouri S&T Help Desk for any other Zoom-related questions.
