EC’s Guide to Zoom

Courses delivered to the comfort of your home!

Ebrahim College recognises the growing need to offer courses offsite so we have partnered up with Zoom to ensure that nothing stops you from learning the deen.

Here is a step by step guide of how to set up and use Zoom for your online classroom studies.


Zoom is an online application that allows meetings to take place remotely. Zoom can also be used for distant learning. In order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our teachers, students and staff, Ebrahim College have adopted Zoom in order to continue delivering our classes during these difficult times.
