More Zoom Resources (by Zoom)
Zoom has its own online resources and tutorials which we've listed below
Step-by-step page to get started Getting started on Mac and PC
There is a collection of video tutorials that cover basic and advanced Zoom features
- There are daily Live Training Webinars available that you may register to attend. These webinars demonstrate Zoom’s abilities and give you a picture of what a student in an online class would experience. Previously recorded webinars are also available if you would like to watch them without participating
- Zoom has an extensive FAQ section where you may find answers to specific questions and the Zoom search field is very powerful on their support site
- If Zoom does not seem to be working correctly you can check the Zoom Service Status page. This page will give you information about whether the service is experiencing disruptions. Due to the sudden load on Zoom from the many colleges and businesses shifting to online collaboration, there may be occasional outages
- For more advanced users there are virtual break-out rooms that you can utilize during class.

Features not accessible or grayed out?
If you encounter settings or features that are grayed out or get a “No permission. (number)” message, UT has not yet configured that feature for our site license.
