Zoom cloud meeting
Zoom cloud meeting (https://zoom.us) is a private video conference service. It is widely used during the COVID-19 pandemic and has become the world's most popular video conference platform. However, the free service (determine by the meeting owner) only allows the maximum of 40 minutes per session. Some teachers may obtain a license and use this platform for online teaching.
Using Zoom on a desktop, you have to download and install a Zoom meeting client (available for free on the official website). Using Zoom on mobile, you will have to download and install the application (available on iOS and Android).
To join the meeting hosted by your teacher, students (participants) don't need any account. Or you may create a free account, or log in with Google, to save your display name and profile photo. The teacher will send you an invitation (via Line or email) like this:
