This training will enable you to use our Zoom tool, inside your Canvas course, to facilitate live, interactive sessions with your students. Using our Canvas-Zoom integration will make it easier for you to schedule and host sessions, and post session recordings. Our Canvas-zoom integration will make it easier for students to join your  sessions and view session recordings. And they don't have to download and install any software, or set up a Zoom account.  Everything happens right inside Canvas.

This course will empower you in our online learning environment. 


After completing the modules, you will be able to:

  • Optimize your Zoom account settings
  • Locate and enable the UM System tool in Canvas
  • Schedule course synchronous Zoom sessions
  • Add additional hosts/presenters to course Zoom sessions
  • Track Zoom session participation
  • Publish course session recordings
  • Access student resources
