Class for Zoom is a platform that your instructor might be using to create classroom Zoom sessions that mimic face to face classrooms as much as possible. The program is meant to be a more inclusive, interactive, and engaging digital environment. You can access Class for Zoom either through a web browser, or an app that you download. We recommend downloading the app, but if your instructor does not have a preference, the web version works just as well.

Using your web browser

Fortunately, launching Class for Zoom from the web browser is easy. When you are prompted to launch Class for Zoom, you will have the option to either Launch Class or Launch Class for Web. Choose Launch Class for Web, and follow the instructions. The following guide shows how to do it as well.

Note: Safari, Firefox, and Edge are not supported by Class for Zoom. If a student can not access Class for Zoom, we recommend checking that they are using an up-to-date Chrome browser, or to download the app.

Download and install the app

If your instructor wants you to use the app, then the following instructions are for you. Follow these steps to download and install the app. There are a lot of steps, but fortunately you will only have to do this once.

  1. Navigate to to download the latest version of Class
  2. Install class using the installation wizard (Note: Do not edit the username or organization fields)

Sign into the app

This initial sign in process can be confusing, and some of it does not feel intuitive. But if you follow these instructions precisely then you will be able to sign in.

  1. Launch Class
  2. Click Sign In
  3. Click “Allow this app to use my shared access permissions,” then click the “Allow” button (Note: This happens only once and allows Class to create Zoom meetings on your behalf)
  4. Click SSO at the bottom of the screen, underneath the key icon
  5. Type “slcc-edu” in the Company Domain field
  6. Sign into the SSO if prompted, which will probably involve a DUO push
At this point, the app is set up and you can join your Class for Zoom sessions in Canvas
