You can use these accounts for free with a Microsoft account, or simply sign in when your organisation already uses Microsoft 365.
Zoom has taken the world by storm, and has especially seen exponential growth at the start of the pandemic last year. The videoconferencing app is notable for its simple interface and quick setup, something that’s sorely lacking in its primary competitors, mainly Google Meet and Microsoft Teams.
Like Zoom, Canva has also taken the world by storm. And if you have used Canva, you know it’s very simple to use – you just create your account, and that’s it.
