Zoom Enables Information Technology Centers to Help Districts Create New Learning Environments

Zoom provides remote conferencing services using cloud computing with communications software that combines video conferencing, online meetings, chat, and mobile collaboration.

Harnessing the power of this technology, the Management Council and Ohio’s Information Technology Centers are helping school districts create new learning environments that connect every student, parent, and staff member.

Expand the Traditional Classroom

  • With Zoom, educators can eliminate traditional barriers to learning and remove the boundaries of brick and mortar. Students now have statewide access to learning.

Enhance Learning Opportunities

  • Virtual field trips, unavailable subjects, and one-to-one leaning – Zoom provides schools the ability to offer equity access to expanded learning opportunities.

Embrace Collaboration

  • Zoom is not just a video conferencing tool. It can be used for weather emergencies, parent-teacher conferences, after hours tutoring, staff in-houses, and much more.

Ohio’s Information Technology Centers, with support from the Management Council, have secured exclusive Ohio-specific pricing at a 93% discount off list price. Ohio school districts can expand every classroom, enhance every learning opportunity, and embrace collaboration events for only $10 per teacher/administrator license each school year.
