Zoom app within Canvas has been updated

Earlier this week, the Canvas-Zoom integration link within Canvas was not working because of a security change in some web browsers like Firefox and Chrome. K-State IT staff has worked with Zoom to resolve the issue and update the Zoom app within Canvas.

What do I need to do?

If you previously had the Zoom app added to your course navigation, you will notice that it has been removed. You will now need to add the new Zoom app to your course.

  1. Open the Canvas course where you want to add Zoom.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Navigation.
  4. Drag Zoom into the course navigation.
  5. Select Save.

For step-by-step instructions, view the How do I manage Course Navigation links guide.

Remember, you can still access Zoom outside of Canvas by going to ksu.zoom.us.
