Web-Based Video Conferencing
In 2019, OHM BOCES began to offer Zoom licenses to our component districts in response to the emerging need for teachers to connect with students in their homes while school buildings were closed in response to the spread of COVID-19. Through Erie 2 BOCES, we are able to offer a safe and stable platform with a company that has signed a Ed Law 2d compliant contract. This service continues through today and has grown to include OHM-based support for Zoom, offerings of professional development to use the platform, best practices for use as an instructional tool, and access to expanded license types that are shared among our component districts, including:
- Large Meeting (500) - 2 liceneses
- Large Meeting (1000) - 1 license
- Webinar (100) - 1 license
- Webinar (500) - 2 licenses
To request use of these licenses on a specfic day, please visit our sign up page by clicking here.
