What Do I Get? 

This service provides access to video conferencing tools to host virtual meetings from a personal or Rowan-owned computer or mobile device.

Rowan University supports Webex and Zoom for videoconferencing. Only Webex is approved for use with confidential information. Due to compliance and security concerns, you must not use Zoom or any other videoconferencing platforms to communicate confidential data. For details on approved uses by platform, please see our Video Conferencing: Appropriate Data Use article.


Why Do I Want It? 

Using these tools, faculty, staff and students can host video conferences and other virtual events over an internet connection — providing the opportunity for face-to-face interaction when all attendees aren't available in person.
