Preparing Your Students: Using Zoom Within Canvas
Because using Zoom as part of your remote teaching strategy may be unfamiliar to your students, it is important to communicate to them about how you will use Zoom within your Canvas course. The first document linked below is a Microsoft Word document that contains some general language you can use to prepare your students to use Zoom in your class (since it is a Word document, it will download to your computer, and not display in your browser window). Feel free to cut and paste sections of it into the messages you send to your students, modifying as necessary to meet your own teaching needs.
The second document (a PDF file) provides additional information that may be helpful in tailoring your messages about using Zoom to your course context.
