Zoom: Overview for Students

Tags GSC


This article will provide information and resources for students on Zoom


Zoom in Canvas 

Some online courses will have required live virtual meetings using Zoom.  The instructor will provide direct links to the Zoom meetings in the Canvas course via an announcement, page or in the course calendar.  In general, once logged into Canvas, you should not be required to log in again unless the instructor has set a password.   


System Requirements: 

Zoom should work well on most modern computers as well as from tablets, mobile devices and smartphones. See the official Zoom System Requirements .  

This document also lists recommendations for cameras, microphones, speakers, and other accessories. Keep your technology tools and devices up-to-date, and in good working order by installing regular Operating System (OS) and software updates -- like Office 365 and the most recent Mac OS.  

Creating your Own Zoom Meeting 

Students can now schedule their own Zoom meetings by logging into their institutional Zoom account.  In addition, students can use Zoom to record a presentation to be submitted in an online course.   

Where can I learn more? 

Visit Zoom's website, support knowledgebase, or YouTube channel.
