Zoom integrates with and is accessible from MyCourses. You will need to have an SPC Zoom account prior to setting up a meeting in MyCourses. This tutorial reviews how you can add a link to a Zoom meeting directly to your course.

Note: Faculty must complete a 30-minute, self-paced training workshop in order to register for a licensed account and begin using Zoom. You can enroll in the Intro to Zoom workshop in the On Demand Trainings section of MyCourses.

To schedule a Zoom meeting outside of MyCourses (for meetings without students, or set by non-faculty) check out this quick video: Scheduling a Zoom Meeting
