Zoom is a cloud video conferencing tool that works from either an installed client or from within your browser. It is another web conferencing tool we are adding to enhance teaching and learning at NPS. 

By default, students and guests do not need a Zoom account, but instructors will need to have an NPS-associated account set up to create and administer Zoom meetings. If you would like a Zoom account, please contact the CLE helpdesk at  clehelp@nps.edu.  For more information, please call the CLE helpdesk at 831-656-2020.
