Instructional Continuity: ZOOM for Students
Cal Poly has a license for ZOOM, a video conferencing software that allows for live streaming or recording of instructors’ lessons, meetings, or office hours. ZOOM allows for video, audio, screen sharing, group breakout rooms, chat, and polling. It can be used from any computer, laptop, tablet, or phone, and it works on Mac, PC, iOS and Android devices with the ZOOM app downloadable from the Apple App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Samsung and Android).

It is important to remember that the Cal Poly Standards for Student Conduct and our Campus Community Values apply to virtual learning environments, just as they apply to our in-person classes. To get you started participating in Zoom class sessions, please thoroughly read "Recommendations for Students in Virtual Learning Environments."
This document contains a set of recommendations and guidelines designed to help you contribute to your classroom community, to treat your classmates and instructors with respect, and to support your success in virtual learning environments.
