Help for schools
To ensure all of our K-12 districts and other institutions can most effectively leverage Zoom for virtual education during this time, Zoom is:
- Temporarily removing the 40-minute limit on free Basic accounts for schools in Japan and Italy, and by request for K-12 schools in the United States.
- Providing multi-language resources specifically designed for principals, vice-principals, teachers, students, and parents to set up and use Zoom.
- Expanding live training, webinars, and recorded offerings to share best practices for using the platform.
