After receiving campus feedback, UNLV selected Zoom to replace Webex as the university’s tool for web conferencing and online meetings. Here is an update on the move to Zoom happening this summer.
Zoom Contract Update
The UNLV Zoom contract is currently being processed. With a university contract, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) will manage and support Zoom accounts.
Zoom Implementation Timeline (tentative)
Switching the campus to Zoom can officially start once the agreement is signed. The timeline will be updated with additional details as soon as possible. Below is the tentative timeline:
- June 1: Zoom accounts using university email (@unlv.edu and @unlv.nevada.edu) move to the UNLV Zoom account
- June 5: Zoom officially launches to campus
- June 29: No new Webex meetings scheduled past this date
- June 30: Webex no longer available, and users unable to access it
Zoom and OIT will work with existing paid account holders during the transition to help ensure that users won't experience any major disruptions.
Save Webex Recordings
You are encouraged to save your Webex recordings in another storage location. Recordings left in Webex will no longer be accessible after June 30. OIT can assist in downloading recordings saved in Webex after Jan. 1, 2023 and making them available upon request.
More information about Zoom, including communication and a new website, is coming. If you have questions or need help saving Webex recordings, please contact the IT Help Desk.
