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 will be downgrading these accounts back to ‘Basic’ mode. This means SSO through Zoom will no longer work and meeting length will be capped at 40 minutes.
Fortunately, there are free alternatives to Zoom that have no time limits and are geared more toward educational environments. Microsoft Teams and Google Classroom/Google Meet offer the same capabilities and are both integrated into the QPS environment.
