TECHNOLOGY

The platform for all committee sessions will be Zoom.

  • Zoom is a video-conferencing application. There are no special requirements for the Zoom platform, other than any type of reliable internet connection (including DSL, cable, wireless, or cellular hotspot — recommended bandwidth 3MBPS) plus a device with webcam capability. MMUN suggests a laptop or tablet, but smartphones will work, provided the user connects through the internet and does not dial-in.
    Please be advised that the best performance can only be achieved with an upload speed of 3 MBPS and a quad-core computer.
    The platform for the ceremonies and social events will be communicated closer to the date of participation.
  • After we confirm participation, access links and passwords will be sent out to the Teacher Coordinators who will forward them to the participating delegates. A personal or school Zoom account will not be necessary.
