Join Zoom from Browser

Join a Zoom meeting (course) from a web browser instead of the app.

Joining a Zoom meeting from a browser is an option for those who don't want to, or are not able to, download the Zoom app on their devices. Note that this only works on computer browsers. The Zoom app will need to be installed on mobile devices and tablets.

Joining the Meeting

Canvas Calendar

  1. In Canvas, click the Calendar icon from the global navigation menu.
  2. Click the name of the meeting (1) and then the link to join the meeting (2).

Zoom Link

  1. Click the link provided to join the meeting or course.

    The link can be in a Canvas course, sent via email, or provided by the instructor.
