Using Zoom Outside of eClass

How do I use Zoom if I do not regularly use an eClass course?
U of A Staff and administrators can use Zoom for various administrative usage such as web conferences, demos, thesis defence, etc. There are two options for how to create a Zoom account:
Participants (students or colleagues) can join meetings through the Join URL (Zoom) (which you can email to them) as Guests without authentication. The URL is created automatically as soon as you create the meeting and is available from the meeting details page.
If you need guests to have host or presenter capabilities once inside Zoom, you can “promote” a participant to Host on the fly in a meeting, which is a common way to give guest speakers the proper capabilities within meetings.
