In the 2017-2018 Contributions Report, Vice President and CIO Elias Eldayrie stated that, “In FY19, UFIT will deploy Zoom as an enterprise-wide service, creating efficiencies by eliminating the need for individual unit licenses or staff support resources across campus.”
The Zoom Pro enterprise-wide license was enabled in spring 2019, incorporating single sign-on for all users and a PHI environment for UF Health. While still a relatively new service for UF, the wide-reaching adoption of Zoom underscores its ease of use and value to our community. Usage numbers for June 2018 – May 2019 show that the UF community has:
■ Zoom’d to and from a total of 138 countries.
■ Held 52,598 meetings during this time.
■ Counted 236,576 overall participants in those meetings.
From recruiting international students and discussing research findings with colleagues overseas to connecting staff from locations around Gainesville, Zoom has become a go-to service for UF. Anyone with questions about getting started using Zoom can view instructions here: https://ufl.zoom.us/.
