Introducing Zoom One for Education: A new unified communication licensing program for schools and universities
Having the right communication tools at the center of today’s modern higher education experiences is critical for teachers, staff, students, and the larger community. Unified communications and collaboration are no longer a luxury but a necessity for educational institutions that have to support hybrid and remote working environments, flexible learning modalities, and essential student services, from recruitment and health services to financial aid and alumni relations.
Zoom One for Education brings together voice, video, chat, phone, live meetings, webinars, recording, transcription, translation services, AV room integration features, and other functionality under one secure umbrella, streamlining collaboration and enhancing learning experiences like never before.
“Zoom Meetings has been a key communication tool across many local education authorities, schools, colleges, and universities, well before 2020,” said Johann Zimmern, Education Strategy Lead at Zoom. “ What most people don’t know is that Zoom is so much more than video meetings. The full platform includes products like Zoom Phone, Zoom Rooms, Zoom Virtual Agent, Zoom Contact Center, and more to help streamline overall collaboration and communication needs for faculty, administrators, and students alike.”
Standardizing on a single communication platform, especially for larger deployments across centralized organizations, can assist with keeping applications up to date, offer budget predictability, and help with centralized IT deployment, management, and usage measurements.
Zoom One for Education offers five new licensing bundles:
- School & Campus
- School & Campus Plus
- Enterprise Essentials
- Enterprise Plus
- Enterprise Premier
Zoom now offers easier-to-manage, consolidated, and tailored solutions to meet the specific needs of educational institutions. The new bundles provide both “buy-as-you-need” and enterprise site-wide coverage models.
Optional add-ons like Zoom Contact Center, Zoom Virtual Agent, and Workvivo round out these new plan offerings to further revolutionize communication, collaboration, and productivity across the entire school or campus.
