In September 2020, UW Madison adopted Zoom as a licensed tool for all Staff and Students. Division of Extension, being part of UW Madison is able to take advantage of this, and are moving from our own Zoom instance to UW Madison’s Zoom instance. Extension will have limited administration of our accounts, and as such will be able to maintain the current security levels which have been reviewed by our County IT partners. You should see no difference as to how you run your Zoom meetings or Webinars.
