These are instructions for how to set up Zoom meetings and publish them in Canvas and how to create an impromptu Zoom Meeting from the classrooms. You can either have the Zoom meeting and its recording populate to your Canvas page once you are done. If you do not want all students to access the recording, you can create an impromptu meeting to record the classroom session and then send the recording to the student when class is over.


Use Canvas to Create Zoom Meetings for a Zoom Classroom

Benefits of this method:

  • Your students will have access to join the Zoom Meetings in the Canvas course. No other invitations or passwords are necessary.
  • The Zoom Room in your classroom will be ready to start your meeting with the touch of a button.
