Zoom is a synchronous tool that allows you to upload slide content and interact with students in real time. Sessions can be recorded for students who do not have access to the Internet at home. Student can playback the session and answer one or two predetermined questions to prove they have watched the recording.


Faculty can request a fully licensed account through eLearning or IT Services.

Creating and Finding a Password Protected Link in Zoom

A quick way to create and find the password protected link when scheduling Zoom meetings.  

For more details about enabling password settings for you account, click here to be directed to the Zoom Security Website.

Adding the Password-Protected Link for Zoom to your Canvas Course Menu

By adding your password-protected link to your Canvas course, you are adding an extra layer of security. Allowing only students who are in your course and have to login to Canvas to have the proper link. Follow the instructions in the video below.

Setting Up and Using Waiting Rooms for your Zoom Meetings

As stated in the Zoom Security website, the Waiting Room is just like it sounds: It's a virtual staging area that prevents people from joining a meeting until the host is read. Meeting hosts can customize the Waiting Room settings to gain further control over which participants join a specific meeting and when.

For more information about Waiting Rooms on the Zoom website click here and here to be redirected to the Zoom website.

Enabling Registration Requirements for Large Meetings/Events

Some meetings may be too large to keep track of who is in the meeting. A great way to help with that is by setting up "Registration" as a requirement for participants in order to receive the correct link to join your meeting.

For more details on setting up and enabling registration requirements, please click this link.

How to Disable Participant's Videos in Zoom as a Host

For many reasons, bandwith, internet connection, or an emergency, there may be a need for you to disable a participant's video. Below are two examples of how to do that. Please note that you are only able to do this with Host and Co-Host privileges.

This is for disabling all participant videos before they enter your Zoom meetings.

Your Zoom meeting recordings can be shared through Panopto inside of Canvas. The following is a semi-automated option.

  1. In your SeattleColleges Zoom account (the one you login with your SeattleColleges.edu login name), record a Zoom meeting, and select the “Record to the Cloud” option.

  2. After ending the meeting, it will take a few minutes to process. You will receive an email from Zoom. That means it is ready. 
  3. Login to Canvas, and click the Panopto Recordings button in the course-level navigation bar.  Click the folder drop-down arrow. Select the “Meeting Recordings” folder.

  4. You have many ways to share that video. 

    One is moving it to the Panopto folder/Canvas shell. Hover over the recording, and then click the Settings button. On the Session Information window, click the Edit link next to the Meeting Recordings folder. Then, select the target folder that represents the Canvas shell/course.

    The other option is changing the share option. Hover over the recording, and then click the Share button. That will open the Share tab. Select the Who has access: option. Then, copy the link or embed codes to share.
