What is a Subaccount?
A subaccount provides districts and colleges with administrative rights to manage their employee Zoom user accounts and product licenses that include Large Meeting, Webinar, Zoom Rooms, and Events. Zoom Marketplace apps that benefit the district can be integrated into the subaccount.
All subaccounts are HIPAA compliant allowing health care providers and counselors to securely meet with their clients; those with a dual role that includes teaching will be able to use the Canvas integration all from one Zoom account.
A new Canvas Zoom integration, a product of Zoom, is installed in a subaccount providing teachers a direct connection to their Zoom account for faster response to connect and process recording downloads, in addition to available attendance reports access using the familiar Zoom interface. Students join from the course, and have access to published recordings.
TechConnect continues to hold all management rights, access, and end-user license allocation to all subaccounts. Product end-user support and related questions will continue to be provided by TechConnect.
The subaccount will be responsible for global and individual account settings, Zoom update management, recording storage management, and technical issues which require support from Zoom.
A kick-off meeting will take place between the TechConnect team and key members of the district organization including the IT Manager, DE Coordinator, Canvas Administrator, and any persons who are integral in the decision making process and coordination to move forward with transitioning to a subaccount.
