UIUC Zoom Education accounts have more features than the free Basic account. This article lists the major differences.

Zoom Basic and Education Functionality

Users with a Basic account will see that they are only able to host meetings up to 40 minutes in length. However, Zoom users with a Basic account are able to participate in meetings hosted by a licensed UIUC Zoom user for up to 24 hours in length. Eligible users on the UIUC campus will have a UIUC Zoom Education account.
