One IT colleagues,
Starting July 25, 2022, several enhancements will be made to the UC Berkeley Zoom Service. We hope these new features will improve your overall Zoom experience:
Security changes - UC Berkeley Zoom accounts will now be able to disable the authentication requirements for meetings as long as a waiting room or passcode is enabled. These settings can be changed in your account settings.
Polling libraries - You can now save polls and quizzes to a library so you can reuse them in future meetings.
Whiteboards - Whiteboards will now be enabled for all accounts. Use whiteboards for brainstorming, note-taking, demonstrating complex concepts, group work, task organization, and more. Note: Whiteboard activity is inaccessible to people who use screen readers. If you use this feature, be prepared to read aloud all the contributions so that everyone can see and /or hear them.
Zoom Apps - Zoom Apps will be enabled for all accounts. Zoom Apps currently include a timer, virtual backgrounds, and an in-meeting Zoom Room controller
