Student Guide: Zoom

What is Zoom?

Zoom is an easy-to-use video conferencing tool that allows you to participate in lectures and seminars, and is fully integrated with your course for an accessible experience.

Zoom lectures or seminars will be scheduled in your Canvas course, and you can join simply via the Zoom section of your Canvas course. Lecturers can record these sessions so you can access them at a later date.

Zoom offers a high quality video, audio, and wireless screen-sharing experience across multiple devices and operating systems, allowing you to focus on your subject and not the technology.
