Adding a Zoom Meeting link to your Canvas Course
All University staff and students have access to the Zoom video conferencing platform. Zoom is a video conferencing system that can be used through a computer or mobile app and allows users to connect online for video calls, conference meetings, live chat and webinars.
You can access your University of Galway Zoom account through the apps in your Office 365 account or directly from https://universityofgalway-ie.zoom.us/
If you have already accessed your account using the steps above, you can also add Zoom to your Canvas Course, using the following steps.
1. Go to your Canvas course > Settings > Navigation. Drag and drop Zoom to reorder it the course navigation and make it visible to users.
You can then Schedule a New Meeting on Zoom
For Zoom support on scheduling please visit the Zoom support webpage - https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us
When your students access the link on Canvas, they are brought to a similar page, where they can see and join any upcoming meetings for the course.
