Zoom is a video conferencing tool that allows you to create and hold online video meetings with the capability to share screens, collaborate and breakout your meeting into smaller groups. Microsoft Teams is a chat-based workspace in Office 365 that makes it easy to have conversations, host meetings, share files, collaborate on documents and get work done within your teams. All members of UCL have access to Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
