Zoom for learning

Zoom is software that enables faculty to hold live class sessions, record those sessions for those who can't attend live, and hold office hours.

All faculty should have a licensed version that allows you to conduct meetings with as many as 300 participants. Students also will have personal accounts, though not with the ability to hold large or long sessions. Zoom can be accessed from within your Canvas course by clicking on the Zoom tab from the left menu.

In order for you to integrate your Zoom into your Canvas account, it is essential that you mark your NMT email address as your default Canvas email. To do this, go your Account page, click Settings, and in the upper right corner you can add email addresses and, by clicking on the star that appears when you mouse over the email address, choose your default.

If you have trouble, please contact the ACT Help Desk or click on the Chat Tab at the bottom of every Canvas page.

To use Zoom, you must have your NMT email address as your default email address in Canvas. How to change your Canvas default email address
