Students can join Zoom meetings scheduled by their instructors directly through Canvas.  First, go to the course within Canvas and click on the Zoom link on the left in course navigation.

*NOTE: Your instructor must first have enabled Zoom in their Canvas course*

You will then see the Zoom dashboard with a list of any upcoming meetings scheduled by your instructor.

Before joining a meeting, ensure your time zone is set properly at the top - you can click the pencil icon to change it if needed.

To join a meeting, simply click on the Join button to the right of the meeting's name.

If you have not used Zoom on your device before, you will be prompted to download and run the Zoom software.
