Zoom is an online meeting service available to all DE teaching and non-teaching staff to hold online classes and meetings. These installation directions are for the software required to create OR join an online class. This is relevant for both students and teachers.

AFTER installing the Zoom software and activating your d-e.org Zoom account (described below), teachers should go to Zoom for teachers for more information about creating and managing a class after you install the software.

Zoom computer and Internet service bandwidth requirements are here.

Get Started by activating your account, installing the software, and logging in

If you have never hosted a meeting on Zoom before and would prefer more formal instruction before jumping in and trying, you might want to attend or watch a recording of the Getting Started with Zoom Meetings training offered by Zoom. (This takes about 30 minutes.)

Activate your account

  • Follow the directions in the email you received from Zoom with the subject "Zoom account invitation"

  • Log in using Google with your @d-e.org address.

Install the Zoom Client for Meetings software

    • Zoom Installers - links only with minimal instructions

    • If you are using an iPad purchased from or supplied by the school, the app is probably already installed for you, or it is available in Self Service.

    • If you are using a non-school related iOS and Android phone or tablet, see the Zoom Installers link above for a link to the iOS/iPadOS and Android mobile apps.

Open the Zoom app and Log In

  1. Find the Zoom icon and start the Zoom software

  2. Sign in to the app/program using the Google choice with your d-e.org email address and My DE password.
