Zoom Video Conferencing

Zoom is now available as an additional web conferencing system for UMD students, faculty, and staff. Zoom unifies web video conferencing, simple online meetings, and group messaging into one easy-to-use platform.

To get started, go to the UMD Zoom website and sign in with your Directory ID and password. Your profile will be automatically created, and you may customize your preferences and settings.

General Information

Using Zoom with Canvas

Zoom is integrated with ELMS-Canvas, but we recommend that you first configure your account/profile on the UMD Zoom website before you connect from inside ELMS-Canvas for the first time. If you get started from ELMS-Canvas, you may encounter unwanted errors.

Teaching with Zoom


Webex (also integrated with ELMS-Canvas) and Google Hangouts Meet remain available to the UMD community members as options for web conferencing.
