Overview

Zoom provides two ways to access webinars: via application (either desktop or mobile client) or directly from a web browser (web client). As a participant (attendee), either method is sufficient. However, panelists and hosts may find the application clients better suited for managing the webinar environment.

You do not need a Zoom account; although you will need to register for webinars, as required.

Desktop Client

The desktop client is available for all Mac, Windows or Linux systems. You will need to download and install the applicable application. You can find the latest version here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362233-Where-Do-I-Download-The-Latest-Version.

Similarly, the mobile client is available for iOS, Android, and Blackberry systems. You can download the application via the Apple or Google stores.
