Using  at 
Zoom is one of the video conferencing systems provided by SLCC. As Staff and Faculty, you have access to schedule/host Zoom for meetings or classes. Students will be provided a basic Zoom license to be able to attend courses. SLCC Zoom Resource Link

Zoom in Canvas enables scheduling and displaying meetings on your course page. Students can easily view and join upcoming sessions from the designated Zoom section, however, it may need to be enabled first.

Enable Zoom in Canvas

Zoom is integrated into Canvas, however, instructors will need to enable the integration for each of the classes if they want to leverage the service. Follow the below steps to enable Zoom in Canvas.

Within your course settings, click on the Navigation tab at the top and drag Zoom to the top section of Canvas course tools. Remember to save the settings.

Note: You may need to change your default email

 After Zoom is enabled in Canvas, you may run into errors when you first begin. Most issues are caused by the default email address in Canvas not matching the default Zoom account. 

To correct the above error you will need to set your email as your primary email in Canvas. Go to your Canvas Profile and Select ACCOUNT>SETTINGS> + Add EMAIL ADDRESS(FIRST.LAST@SLCC.EDU). 

Note that you may need to verify the email if adding a new one before it will allow you to set it as the default in Canvas with a star.

Scheduling a Zoom Meeting


After Zoom is enabled in your course, the tool can be used to schedule single or reoccuring sessions. 

After clicking on Zoom within the course navigation menu (1), you can click the Schedule a New Meeting button on the upper right corner (2).

Setting the criteria for Zoom meetings is similar to directly using Zoom (browser or app) as within Canvas (browser or app). For additional information on setting up meeting criteria, see the following article: Scheduling Meetings. You can also see an example from Yale University.
