Zoom Tips


AUC's Office for Digital Transformation has been hard at work for the past few weeks preparing and facilitating the shift to online instruction and remote work. One of the most critical elements of transitioning online was purchasing an institutional license for Zoom and making it so that the AUC community can sign in using their University credentials. "So much work went into doing this in such a short amount of time, and it was a success," said Vice President for Digital Transformation Ayman Abdellatif.
