Zoom lets you have online real-time sessions with your colleagues. You can share your presentations or desktop, collaborate with others, conduct small group activities, use polling to ask questions and more, all from virtually any device.

An account is not required if you are simply joining a meeting.  If you would like to create and host an online meeting, you will require an account. Under our licensing, all users can set up, initiate, and run meetings.
