BALTIMORE (WJZ) — As many schools and universities are starting classes Monday, Zoom experienced some technical difficulties.
The University of Maryland posted on its orientation Twitter page the application was preventing their orientation program set for Monday from starting.
UPDATE: Programming will now take place via WebEx. Students should have received an email from their Orientation Advisor with new links to access the program.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any issues and thank you for your patience. https://t.co/i5QwRDuNR0

Nationwide outages popped up early Monday morning.
“We have received reports of users being unable to visit the Zoom website (zoom.us) and unable to start and join Zoom Meetings and Webinars,” the company wrote on its status page at 5:51 a.m. PT (8:51 a.m. ET/1:51 a.m. BST).
Meeting and webinar service was restored shortly after noon.
Thanks for your patience! Meeting and webinar service has been restored for the majority of users.
