At the UU, Microsoft Teams is the primary tool for providing online education. Microsoft Teams has recently undergone many developments, but it still lacks certain functionalities that other packages such as Zoom do provide. Zoom does not meet all the security requirements set by the UU. Teaching Support can therefore help you to see if MS Teams is a workable alternative.
Do you need Zoom anyway, for instance because you are a meeting host yourself and need the specific functionalities of Zoom? Then use Zoom with a UU licence. You can apply for such a licence via your faculty's information manager.
