​​About Zoom

Zoom is a powerful web-conferencing tool that allows faculty to communicate with colleagues or deliver course content in real-time or via recording. It is built specifically for live, multi-media-rich, online collaboration, and provides faculty with a virtual classroom for conferencing and lectures.

In June 2018, Zoom replaced Collaborate as SFA's campus-wide solution for web-conferencing. It is integrated into D2L but can also be used independently of D2L.


All SFA faculty, students, and staff can access and use Zoom by going to this URL: sfasu.zoom.us. Once there, click the Sign In button and use your mySFA credentials to log in.

Zoom offers a number of video tutorials to help you learn to use the product. In particular, we recommend the following tutorials:
