      • Note: Students who join the Zoom session from the link in the integration will automatically be Participants. 

All sessions scheduled this way will appear in the Integration and all cloud recordings made in sessions scheduled this way will appear in the integration as well. To learn how to enable cloud recordings, see InterPro - Online Learning - Tools and Technology - Web Conferencing - Enable Cloud Recordings for Student View in Canvas integration Zoom Conferences

Note: Students can also create sessions in the Integration interface. All instructors will automatically be enrolled as co-host. Students can use these rooms to meet informally.

Importing Zoom Meetings Into Canvas using the Canvas-Zoom Integration

The Zoom-Canvas integration is used for for-credit courses. 

Zoom polls and quizzes are stored in the Surveys library and are available across a host's meetings regardless of whether the meeting was scheduled in the Zoom web portal or through the Zoom-Canvas integration. 

Zoom meetings that contain Zoom surveys are best created through the Zoom web portal and then imported into Canvas rather than being created via the Canvas integration.  

1. Sign in to your Zoom account through the Zoom web portal using your NetID.

    1. 2. Select a previously created Zoom meeting that includes Zoom survey(s) under the Upcoming Meetings tab or click the + Schedule a Meeting button to create and save a Zoom meeting containing Zoom polls/quizzes. InterPro - Teaching & Learning - Tools & Technology - Zoom Polls and Quizzes

    2. 3.  After selecting a previously created or saving a newly created Zoom meeting, you will be directed to the My Meetings > Manage "Name of Meeting" page. Copy the Meeting ID on the Details page.
