How to Add Zoom to Your Canvas Course


Zoom is integrated into Canvas, but instructors must add it to their courses in order to use it.


Before adding Zoom to Canvas for the first time, you'll want to make sure you create an account in Zoom (see this article for more information). Being logged into Zoom in another tab, also seems to make the process faster. In your Canvas course:

  1. Go to Setting in the course menu.
  2. Click the Navigation tab at the top.
  3. Scroll down to the Item hidden from students to locate Zoom.
  4. Click the three dots in the Zoom box and select Enable.
  5. Zoom will now be in the menu list above. You can drag it wherever you would like it in the course menu.
  6. Click the Save button.

Zoom will now be an option in the course menu. When you open it up, you will have the ability to schedule a meeting and see upcoming meetings.

PLEASE NOTE: The meeting schedule form allows you to select options that you may not be able to use if you are using a Basic account. (Recording the session and having meetings over 40-minutes are currently only available to licensed users.)
