The University of Macau has purchased a campus license for Zoom, an online videoconferencing service. Zoom is a leading, cloud-based platform for videoconferencing and simple online meetings. This web-based conferencing service uses high-quality video and audio and is accessible on Windows and Mac OS X, as well as iOS and Android mobile phones. Joining a Zoom meeting on your computer or mobile device is as easy as clicking on a URL.

UM staff and students at UM can get a Basic Zoom account capable of holding 40-minute meetings with up to 50 participants. To get an UM Zoom account, visit the ICTO Account Information Page at https://account.icto.umac.mo and read and agree to the terms.

  • A basic account allows up to 50 participants to join a video meeting at the same time, share content, send personal messages, record video meetings, and other features. It is a good choice for hosting online office hours or tutorial sessions.
  • Faculty can request a temporary T&L license for educational activities with up to 50 participants for meetings of an unlimited duration. Fill out a  Zoom T&L License Request Form. After you complete the request form, CTLE will verify your request and contact you.
