The Zoom videoconferencing app is a tool for online conferencing. The Executive Board has decided that Zoom can now be used by employees and students on the UT and has purchased a campus license. The university thus meets the wishes of students and teachers.
Zoom was initially not allowed on the UT due to privacy and security issues. Because there are still some safety concerns, we have blocked a number of functionalities in Zoom for employees and students. In this way, risks are eliminated. In addition, the urgent advice is to use Zoom only when Teams and Canvas are failing functionality and only for non-confidential purposes.
