Does Zoom have any software for kura?

For kura wanting more tools and administrative control, Zoom’s Education plan provides all the tools in the basic plan along with many other capabilities. These include:


  • Unlimited meetings for up to to 300 participants
  • Single sign-on (SSO)
  • LTI integration to support most LMS platforms
  • Enhanced user management to add, delete, and assign add-on features
  • Advanced admin controls for enabling/disabling recording, chat, and notifications
  • 500 MB of cloud recording
  • Cloud recording transcription 
  • Usage reports to track participation 


If you require assistance in deciding whether a Basic or Education plan is right for you or your kura, connect with a Zoom specialist here.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            


Enabling your free Zoom account

To have the 40-minute time limit temporarily removed for your kura (if you have a Basic account):


  • Have your administrators, staff, and teachers sign up for a free Zoom account.
  • Have a member of your school fill out this form to request the temporary removal.
  • Upon verification, all free Basic accounts using your kura email domain will have the time restriction lifted.


Now you will be able to log in, schedule their classes, and send out invites to tauira. Your tauira are not required to have a Zoom account and can join classes using the links you send them.

Zoom have numerous short videos on support.zoom.us to help you get started.
