Zoom is a video conferencing software for your computer or mobile device that supports 50 connections.
How to get a Zoom account?
There are two groups of people in our department: (1) Those who does not have a UC ANR and (2) those who are part of UC ANR. The people who are part of UC ANR, in turn, is divided into two sub-groups: (2a) Those with a @ucanr.edu email account and (2b) those with a @ucdavis.edu account.
1. For non UC ANR people
If you are not part of UC ANR, you must purchase a Zoom account on your own. For more information visit Zoom Licensing Options.
2a. For UC ANR people with a @ucanr.edu email
If you are part of UC ANR and have a @ucanr.edu email address, logging in is simple:
Go to https://ucanr.zoom.us/ and login using your @anr.edu email.
2b. For UC ANR people with a @ucdavis.edu email
If you are part of UC ANR and have a @ucdavis.edu email address, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. requesting for a Zoom account. In the body of the email indicate that you are part of UC ANR, but not have a @ucanr.edu email.
After they approve your request, follow these steps:
- Go to https://zoom.us
- Click on the SIGN IN button at the top left corner of the webpage.
- Click the “Forget password” link
- Enter your @ucdavis.edu email address and Click the “Send” button
- They will send you an email to reset your password
Note that the difference between group 2a and 2b is in the web address of the Zoom website. The first one goes to the UC ANR portal on the Zoom server. The second one goes directly to the Zoom server itself.
