Zoom is virtual meeting software now available to the PSU community! All PSU users can access Zoom at pdx.zoom.us with their Odin credentials. Zoom was selected by a faculty-led steering group, replacing Blackboard Collaborate as our virtual classroom solution. Zoom was selected because of its strong reliability and broad menu of features.
