Zoom

Zoom is a program for video conferencing that MF and many other schools use for lectures and meetings online.

  • If you are only using Zoom to join a lecture, you don't have to log in to Zoom. Just clicking on the link for the Zoom meeting should be enough to join.
  • We still recommend you to install Zoom on your PC or Mac.
  • You can also install Zoom on mobile devices: Android version, iOS version
  • All students and employees at MF can use the Pro version of Zoom by logging in with their MF account / Feide. You can look at the instructions below for how to log in.
  • With a Pro account you can host your own video meetings longer than 40 minutes.
  • Feel free to use Zoom for private video meetings even if it is not school-related.
  • Do note that when you are finished with your studies at MF, you will no longer have access to this Zoom Pro account.
