No. All UNH students and staff can go ahead and login. There's no need to request an account or anything else. Just click the "Sign In/My Account" link in the upper right to get started.
What does it cost?
Zoom is centrally funded by USNH, and all UNH students and employees get licenses at no direct cost to the users. Departments using some features like toll-free call in numbers do need to pay for the charges they incur.
What are the system requirements? What kind of computer, camera, microphone, etc do I need?
Zoom should work well on most any modern computer as well as from tablets and smartphones. Zoom has published offical system requirements for computers. This document also lists recommendations for cameras, microphones, speakers, and other accessories. The UNH Computer Store staff are aware of the recommended products for Zoom and have some in stock and can assist you in getting what you need.
Cisco videoconferencing unit only shows audio; no video
If someone rings a Cisco videoconferencing unit and the unit is already on a call, make sure you select "Accept and disconnect current session". If you accept the call and merge the sessions, you will only have audio.
Zoom has many applications in teaching and learning:
Teaching to remote students
Bringing remote presenters into the classroom
Teaching class when you have to be away from campus
Meetings and work session for group projects
Managing around curtailed operations on campus
Keep in mind that all UNH students can host Zoom meetings with anyone that they would like to connect with as well. They do not require a faculty member to setup and host a Zoom meeting session.
