Northwestern Information Technology (IT) is retiring the BlueJeans Conferencing service on August 1, 2020, in favor of Zoom Web Conferencing.

In preparation for this service retirement, BlueJeans account holders have received email communications highlighting key dates and information for how to start using Zoom.
