Zoom is an audio and video web conferencing tool that allows you to interact with your instructor and peers online, in real-time. You can access Zoom directly within your Canvas course.
When a Zoom meeting is created by an Instructor for your Canvas course, the meeting information is:
- Automatically sent to your Canvas Inbox.
- Added to your Canvas Dashboard as a To-Do activity.
- Added to your course calendar as an activity to complete.
Meetings created by your Instructor for a course will visible within the Zoom Meeting area of your Canvas course in the “Upcoming Meetings” tab.
Note that there is also a “Previous Meetings” tab in the Zoom Meeting area of your Canvas course that displays past meeting information.
