Canvas & Zoom

Canvas also integrates with Zoom so you can attend virtual class sessions, or host study groups. A Sac State Zoom account isn't required to participate - you'll just need one of the following:

  • Through the Zoom tool in Canvas
  • You receive a Canvas notification/announcement
  • Your instructor emails you a Zoom link.
