Zoom Basics in Canvas

If you are using the HIPAA compliant instance of Zoom at WCU the Zoom integration in Canvas will not work and an error will occur.
It is recommended to hide the Zoom linke from the left course menu and schedule the Zoom meetings directly in the Zoom instance then copy the url for the meeting to your Canvas course to avoid any confusion or errors from occuring.

Scheduling a Zoom Meeting

The video below provides a quick overview of how to schedule a Zoom meeting. Note: Zoom has been integrated with Canvas, adding additional features. For class meetings, we recommend using the Canvas Zoom interface in your course, which will enable students to see a list of Zoom meetings relevant to their course. For non-course Zoom meetings or to schedule meetings not relevant for all students such as individual office hours meetings, use the WCU Zoom Portal (Links to an external site.)

Scheduling a meeting using Zoom in Course Navigation: 

  1. In Course Navigation, click the Zoom link. 
  2. Click the Schedule a New Meeting button. To learn more about scheduling meetings, visit the Scheduling Meetings guide in the Zoom Help Center.
  3. To schedule a recurring meeting, click the Recurring Meeting checkbox. 
  4. You can set how often the meeting recurs, the number of meeting occurrences, and the date for the final occurrence. Note: When scheduling a recurring meeting, each occurrence is created as an independent event. To modify all recurring meetings, you must edit each meeting individually.
