Zoom One for Education Launches with Unified Communications, Licensing for Universities

Zoom has globally launched its new Zoom One for Education plan, offering a unified communications and collaboration licensing option designed specifically for education organizations, according to a news release.

The program combines voice, video, chat, phone, live meetings, webinars, recording, transcription, translation services, AV room integration features, and other functionality under one secure umbrella, the company said.

“Zoom Meetings has been a key communication tool across many local education authorities, schools, colleges, and universities, well before 2020,” said Johann Zimmern at Zoom. “The full platform includes products like Zoom Phone, Zoom Rooms, Zoom Virtual Agent, Zoom Contact Center, and more to help streamline overall collaboration and communication needs for faculty, administrators, and students alike.”

The standardization of all features on a single platform is particularly useful for larger organizations, which can more easily keep applications up to date, predict budget needs, and centralized IT deployment, management, and usage measurements, the company said.

Zoom One for Education offers five new licensing bundles:

  • School & Campus

  • School & Campus Plus

  • Enterprise Essentials

  • Enterprise Plus

  • Enterprise Premier

Zoom also is now offering tailored solutions to meet the specific needs of educational institutions, the announcement said. The new bundles provide both “buy-as-you-need” and enterprise site-wide coverage models.

Optional add-ons include Zoom Contact Center, Zoom Virtual Agent, and Workvivo. Zoom also recently announced that AI Companion, which has been in beta for months, is now available at no additional cost with paid Zoom user accounts.
