Penn State Reports Zoom Outage On First Day Of Classes

Update 1:15 p.m.: Penn State said Zoom’s outage has been resolved. The university encourages anyone who continues facing issues to clear their cache before logging on.

Update, 10:15 a.m.: Penn State has acknowledged the reported “widespread outage” and advised students to download Zoom’s Desktop Client as a potential workaround.

Through a Canvas message, the university suggests students and faculty manually input their Zoom meeting IDs and passcodes in an attempt to get around the service disrupture.

Original Story: Penn State’s second semester at Zoom University seems to be off to a rough start.

A number of Penn State professors are reporting technical problems with the virtual meeting tool just an hour into the university’s first day of classes.

“I regret to inform you that it is impossible for me to get into Zoom,” industrial engineering professor El-Amine Lehtihet wrote to his students. “There seems to be a system-wide problem.”

According to Zoom’s online status page, its Zoom meeting and Zoom video webinar tools are both reporting partial outages as of 9:20 a.m.

DownDetector.com, a site that exclusively tracks online outages, reported Zoom’s disruption currently seems to be concentrated along the east coast.
