UCF Zoom Guides

UCF offers a campus-wide license for Zoom, a video conferencing platform for online classes, meetings, conferences, remote office hours, webinars, and lectures. If you prefer to continue holding your class synchronously at its scheduled time, but in a remote format, you may do so using Zoom.

All UCF faculty, GTAs, staff, and students with an active NID have access to Zoom. Faculty can use the Zoom tool in their Webcourses@UCF courses. Zoom can be used on your desktop (Mac and Windows) and mobile devices (Android and iOS).

A Note When Hosting Synchronous Zoom Meetings

Please keep in mind with the increase in remote instruction and telecommuting, connectivity for live meetings may prove to be difficult for some students. With Zoom, you can always record and publish a Zoom meeting for asynchronous viewing to your course in Webcourses@UCF.

Accessibility in Zoom

  • Transcribe Cloud Recordings Automatically – Use the Audio transcript option (under Cloud Recording) to automatically transcribe the audio of a meeting or webinar that you record to the cloud.  
  • Add Closed Captioning – Closed captioning is a manual process in Zoom. This means that someone (either a host, co-host, panelist, or a third-party vendor) will need to type the closed captions during the meeting or webinar.  
  • Use Hot Keys and Keyboard Shortcuts for Zoom – There are keyboard shortcuts that you can use on the Zoom Desktop Client for Windows and Mac that allow you to navigate the Zoom settings without using your mouse.  

Zoom Support

Webcourses@UCF Support provides support to our students, faculty, and staff for any technical assistance, concerns, or questions related to Zoom.
