"The solution allows me to connect and collaborate with my classes."
"The grid view option is great, as you get to see everyone who is in the video conference at the same time."
"The most valuable features of Zoom are the quality of the video is better than other solutions and they have a recording option that is useful. Additionally, it helps to collaborate with other organizations."
"Zoom is easy to set up and is a very stable video communications app."
"Zoom is pretty safe and secure."
"The stability has been good overall."
"There is no installation, you can give someone a link to the chat and they can access the chat through the link."
"Compared to Teams, Zoom's performance and user interface are better. This is especially the case when you're doing any kind of online presentation, PowerPoint, or team demo. I think Zoom is much more user friendly."
"A good option for online meetings."
"If there were maybe more tutorials outside of what I'm aware the university is suggesting, I would take more tutorials on effective ways to deliver content. I come from the industry and content was always needed when people that were observing were smart and involved and decision-makers instead of so passively just trying to pass the course. In my imagination, the tutorials would be a tool where the learners themselves can have much more hands-on learning during a Collaborate session."
"Could be more flexible for individuals that do not have the economic capacity."
"Zoom can improve the user-friendliness of the management when you are doing a webinar."
"The recording capabilities may not be as good as WebEx, however, I can't be sure about that just yet."
"Zoom's user interface could be improved. For example, it could have bigger buttons for elderly people."
"The performance could be better."
"The free version of Zoom only allows you to have a call session for approximately 45 minutes. This should be extended."
"In some cases, I am not able to have a special background during the conversation. It could be because my device is not powerful enough, but I am not able to share a properly designed background. I am having problems setting up my virtual background. It is very easy to set up a virtual background during the conversation with Microsoft Teams, and that's why I like Microsoft Teams, but with Zoom, I find it difficult. I am not able to set up my virtual background very easily. They can look into this area and then see how to improve it."
"There was a situation not long ago when there were some security fears. Some users had somebody else take control of their calls. They might have addressed these issues now, but the security needs to continue to be upgraded."
