Zoom Events & Meetings

Catering to the SFU community, Zoom is best suited for large events or classes where the host and panelists prefer more control over the audience. It allows view-only attendees to minimize interuptions. Attendees can interact via Q&A, chat and polling.

MECS can help setup and moderate with virtual events on the Zoom platform! Meetings, presentations, webinars, conferences, social events, retirements, holiday parties, and more are all possible!

Attendees and panelists do not need to be part of the SFU community to particiate.

Webcasting and recording are available through SFU IT Services. Please contact them here.
