There are a couple reasons why you may want to use the Zoom tool in your course.

  • You may want to set up a repeating weekly meeting session online for the whole duration of your course.
  • Holding office hours online for online, hybrid or face-to-face courses.
  • Setting up a one-time meeting session in your course, in case you won’t be able to physically make it to a class session.
  • Scheduling an online study session with your students before an important exam.

The CalStateLA Zoom tool makes these options possible. However, these options require technical steps. The Canvas Zoom guides have instructions for creating these types of Zoom meetings.
