During the onset of COVID-19 in early 2020, Zoom Meetings offered a free upgrade to educational institutions.  This upgrade removed the Basic 40 minute meeting limit and enabled Single Sign On which enabled the use of Zoom in Clever.  On July 1st, 2020, Zoom downgraded these accounts back to ‘Basic’ mode.  This means SSO through Zoom no longer works and meeting length is be capped at 40 minutes.

Fortunately, there are free alternatives to Zoom that have no time limits and are also geared more toward educational environments.  Microsoft Teams and Google Classroom/Google Meet offer the same capabilities and are both integrated into the QPS environment.

Microsoft Teams is available through Clever Portal (near the top) and the following link: https://teams.microsoft.com
