K-State Online: Maintenance requires re-link to Zoom

by Information Technology Services

Zoom maintenance was conducted on Wednesday, Sept. 16, to fix problems experienced by many users this semester when using Zoom videoconferencing through K-State Online. A fix was applied to the Zoom tool within K-State Online that will resolve this issue. Instructors will need to re-link Zoom in their courses.

The fix removed the current Zoom link that was in the  course navigation. Only the link was removed; no changes were made to any archived or scheduled sessions.

To re-link Zoom, follow these instructions:

  1. Open your course in K-State Online Canvas.
  2. On the left-hand navigation menu, click Settings.
  3. Click the Navigation tab.
  4. Under the Drag items here to hide them from students, you will find the Zoom app.
  5. Drag the Zoom app upward to place it under the Drag and drop items to reorder them in the course navigation.
  6. Click Save.

You and your students can now use Zoom in your course navigation.  If you have any questions or problems, please contact the IT Help Desk for assistance.
