Canvas Updates and Changes

Using Zoom with Canvas

You have probably noticed a new “Zoom” tab on your Canvas screen. Zoom is a powerful video conferencing system that is very easy to use. It provides unique opportunities to add an interactive, synchronous component to your courses, and to involve your students in new ways. It helps make learning more accessible, relevant and exciting.

Using Zoom, students can share projects, give presentations, and have a live discussion among themselves and with you, using video, voice, chat, screen captures, images or a combination of all of them. Additionally, Zoom sessions can be saved for later viewing.
