Zoom is a video conferencing tool available via a web browser, computer software, or mobile app, and it is the tool that Millbrook will use during our remote learning period in the spring of 2020. Zoom will allow students and teachers to connect in virtual classrooms, alumni and administrators to chat in webinars, and faculty to hold meetings online that would typically be held in spaces on campus.

There are many benefits to using Zoom including:
  • Virtual meetings easy to start and to join, and that allow collaboration across any device
  • HD video and audio
  • Group chats, screen sharing, and file sharing
  • Participants can raise their hands virtually and send feedback via emojis
  • Ability to track attendance and engagement
Millbrook looks forward to Zooming with you!
Please follow the instructions below, and you'll be Zooming in no time too.
