Zoom is the virtual classroom and meeting platform used by MACC to deliver virtual class sessions, host meetings, and provide one-on-one support for students, faculty, and staff.
You do not need to be logged into a Zoom account to participate in virtual meetings. Basic directions and tips to prepare for, join, and participate in virtual learning and meetings are provided in the tabs below.
Zoom account and training requirements vary for faculty and staff depending on their role(s) at MACC. Basic information and guidelines to get started are provided in the tabs below.
MACC employee Zoom accounts must be part of MACC’s Educational account and used only for MACC official business. Contact Instructional Technology to set up a new account, check the status of your current account, or move an existing account into MACC’s Education account.
The Zoom QuickStart Guide for Staff is coming soon. This guide provides MACC supervisors and staff with the basic information needed to access/manage their MACC-issued Zoom accounts as well as set up and host secure meetings for a variety of purposes. Instructional Technology Specialists are also available to provide assistance as needed.
Available features, settings, and tools may vary depending on the employee’s duties and responsibilities. Also, there are a few settings that do not work with MACC’s Education Zoom account. If you have questions about a specific feature, setting, or tool, please contact the Instructional Technology Department.
Basic training is provided by direct supervisors, through Zoom School, and/or by Instructional Technology upon request.
MACC’s Zoom training is required for all faculty teaching virtually and optional for all others. Contact Instructional Technology to enroll in this course.
Special Circumstances & Account Management: Contact Instructional Technology for guidance and assistance with specific types of meetings and/or account management questions.
All participants are expected to attend virtual classes and one-on-one meetings in a way that allows them to give their undivided attention to the meeting. For your personal safety and the safety of others around you, DO NOT join virtual meetings while driving or engaging in other similar activities that require your undivided attention.
Participants are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate, ethical, and legal manner at all times and engage during the virtual meeting same as would be expected in an on-campus classroom. Meeting hosts reserve the right to limit participation to prevent inappropriate behavior during a virtual meeting as needed and to remove/report participants who violate MACC’s Student Conduct Policy.
No, students, faculty, and staff can join and participate in meetings without a Zoom account. Only those who are creating and/or hosting meetings need a MACC-issued Zoom account.
This option is only available to MACC employees through the Desktop App (Zoom client) when they are logged into their MACC issued Zoom account
