TechConnect Zoom for Canvas

Faculty Guide

‘TechConnect Zoom’ is the new Canvas integration (replacing the old ConferZoom integration) that will offer more scheduling options, faster recording downloads, and applied Zoom updates.  The new app appears in your Canvas navigation and is a direct connection to Zoom.  The interface looks just like Zoom, because it is Zoom! Click on the ‘TechConnect Zoom’ app in course navigation.  The menu tabs include:

  • All My Zoom Meeting/Recordings or Course Meetings/Recordings
  • Schedule a New Meeting
  • Import a Meeting (icon is the 3 vertical dots)
  • Upcoming Meetings
  • Previous Meetings
  • Cloud Recordings

* When there is more than one instructor in the course, all meetings/recordings for all instructors can be viewed; or view only your meetings/recordings.  The option to toggle between the options is to the left of the ‘Schedule a New Meeting’ button.
