Zoom Video Conferencing
Accessing Zoom in Brightspace
Using the integrated Zoom feature in Brightspace makes it easier to meet with your students directly in your scheduled course. To access this new integrated feature, please follow the steps below or click on the button to learn more:
2. On your SSO landing page, access Brightspace by clicking on the D2L Brightspace chiclet.
Please Note: do not access Zoom from the main landing page—the Zoom chiclet it is not integrated with your Brightspace course. The Zoom chiclet should only be used for staff or departmental meetings.
3. Navigate to your current course within your My Courses widget or by clicking on the course selector icon in the top header.
4. In the blue navigation bar, click on Learning Tools then select Zoom.
Please note: As a best practice, class meetings should only be scheduled and joined directly within the course.
