Zoom Video Meetings
DVUSD's Education account allows us to securely meet with students to provide live instruction to students during office hours and tutoring, flexibility for the learner, and equal opportunities for students and teachers regardless of location.
To increase the security of Zoom meetings, DVUSD has a Zoom EDU account. Within this account security settings are in place for meetings hosted by DVUSD teachers including requiring the use of waiting rooms and passwords. Within DVUSD's Zoom EDU account, we have security settings in place for student users. DVUSD student users create Zoom accounts with their DVUSD Google account. While students cannot host their own meetings, teachers may require students to log in with this account prior to joining Zoom meetings.
