Zoom Student Guides In Your Courses

When you create a Zoom meeting in your Canvas course, the meeting information is automatically sent to your students’ Canvas email and added to their Canvas Dashboard and course calendar as a task to complete.

In addition to this, templates have been added to your Canvas course to provide guidelines to your students on how they can access your Zoom meetings.



In the Announcements area of your Canvas course, the “Guidelines for Joining the Online Zoom Meeting” announcement has been added.


To use this announcement in your course:

  1. Click the “Edit” button to the top right of the announcement.
  2. Uncheck the Delay Posting checkbox or change the Post At date of this announcement.
  3. Click the blue “Save” button.



Page in Your Modules Area

In the Modules area of your Canvas course, we have also added the “How to Join the Online Zoom Meeting” page for students. This page walks students through the step-by-step process of joining meetings, testing internet, audio, and video settings, and more.
