Zoom is a web conferencing tool that unifies cloud video conferencing, online meetings, and collaboration into a single intuitive platform. Zoom's extensive feature set, broad compatibility with desktop and mobile devices, and multi-layered security allow CU Boulder to have rich web conferencing experiences with both campus affiliated and unaffiliated users.

  2. Click Sign In with SSO
  3. Enter "cuboulder" and click continue
  4. A browser window will open prompting you for your Federated Identity Service identikey and password credentials. Click Continue.
