Zoom is a web conferencing service used at the JHU School of Nursing. More information about Zoom can be found on their web site:
Zoom is best used for online meetings that need advanced sharing capabilities, including some or all of these features:
- Video collaboration
- Meeting audio or video recording
- Screen sharing
Creating Your Own Account for Students
Students can access/activate their Pro-level Zoom account online, by going to https://jhubluejays.zoom.us/ and logging in with their JHED credentials. When logging in with the desktop client, please select "Login with SSO" and enter the domain as "jhubluejays". You can learn more about Zoom viewing the user guides and short video tutorials on Zoom’s support page.
Creating Your Own Account for Staff and Faculty
Please reference the two instructional videos below on creating your Zoom account, scheduling meetings, adjusting meeting settings, and troubleshooting. Note when you login to Zoom for the first time, a Basic level account is created for you. A Basic level account does not have the ability to record meetings and meetings with more than 2 participants are limited to 40 minutes. We review newly created accounts daily and, after confirming the account belongs to a full-time faculty or staff member, we will automatically upgrade it to Pro level which will eliminate the Basic limitations. If you need your account upgraded to Pro level immediately, simply call or e-mail the SON Help Desk and we will make sure it gets done right away.

As more people begin using personal Zoom accounts rather than having SON Multimedia schedule meetings, we may develop more in-depth training to ensure everyone is getting the maximum benefit from this resource. Please feel free to contact the SON Help Desk if you have any questions or problems creating or using your Zoom account.
How to Request a One Time Meeting
To request a Zoom meeting, complete this form:
How to Use Zoom
Soon after you complete a meeting request, a 9 digit Zoom meeting ID will be emailed to you for that meeting. The meeting assigned to you should be used ONLY during the scheduled meeting time (not before or after the meeting, otherwise you might interrupt another scheduled meeting). To access the meeting, you simply visit the URL (web site address) sent to you. If you wish to join the meeting by phone, dial the call in number provided to you and enter the 9 digit meeting ID. If joining from a mobile device using the Zoom app, also simply enter the 9 digit meeting ID.
To try out a test Zoom meeting to be sure your computer is setup correctly, visit:
Please do not use a scheduled Zoom meeting to test, outside of the scheduled meeting time. Using a Zoom meeting ID outside of the scheduled time can interrupt other meetings in progress.
