ConferZoom provides a reliable, easy-to-use, mobile-friendly tool for live, recordable online presentations, meetings, and discussions with audio, video, chat, screen sharing, polling, and more. It can be used within Canvas or independently. ConferZoom (called "ConferNow" in COC Canvas LMS), is the California Community College (CCC) “branding” of Zoom and is available to all CCC faculty and students at no charge. Faculty need to sign up for Zoom through the ConferZoom site to obtain unlimited access to all features of Zoom. Recordings can be set to auto-transcribe to provide captioned recorded videos.
  • Sign Up – Free for COC Faculty. Sign up with your @canyons.edu email address​
  • ​​​CCC Confer provides live captioning for instructional uses of Zoom. As of summer 2018, send your captioning request at least 5 business days in advance to clientservices@cccconfer.org . It is expected that there will be an online form for requesting captioning soon. You will need to make a one-time change in your Zoom account settings to enable closed-captioning, and at the start of each Zoom session with captioning, you will need to assign the captioning role to the proper person in your meeting. See directions for both.​
