Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing tool you can use to virtually meet with others – either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats, and sharing your screen. It lets you record the meetings to watch later or share with others. Zoom improves student outcomes with secure video communication services for hybrid classrooms, office hours, and more. Instructors and students access Zoom through the course navigation button in a Canvas course. Topics covered in this session include:

  • Creating account/Logging in
