or Appointment Booking. Whichever tool you use, they function exactly the same.
- Student Connect is a stand-alone tool in your Canvas course, and separate from the TechConnect Zoom
tool (your District may have a custom name for the Zoom tool).
Sync Student Connect with the Instructor’s Zoom Account
The first time an instructor logs into Student Connect, they will land on Account Setting s> Conferencing Accounts to sync Student Connect with Zoom. When the green check mark appears, the accounts are in sync.
Your Canvas email and Zoom email addresses must match; if they do not, an error will appear. Contact your
support help desk to resolve the issue.
Reminders and Update Settings
Go to ‘Account Settings > Email’ to subscribe to receive reminders for upcoming sessions, an itinerary of the events, and updates of scheduling changes made when a student reserves or changes an appointment.
Set up your personal calendar to subscribe to upcoming sessions in Student Connect. Go to ‘Account Settings > Personal Calendar’ to get the calendar link to enter into your calendar.
Supported calendar applications include Apple iPad / iPhone Calendar, Evolution, Google Calendar, One Calendar for Windows 10 (Account type: WebCal), Mozilla Thunderbird (with Lightning), Outlook for Windows (Home -> Add Calendar > From Internet), Outlook.com, Zoho Calendar, and any other application which has subscription support for iCalendar / ICS / WebCal.
Please note several applications claim to have support, but they do not work, such as AOL Calendar, KOrganizer, and Yahoo! Mail.
When you click on the "Personal Calendar" tab on the navigation bar, you will be presented with a link to a personal iCalendar / ICS / WebCal feed. Paste this link into your calendar software subscription section. It is important to subscribe instead of performing a one time import, as the feed of your upcoming sessions changes over time.

Booking an Appointment
When available appointments are scheduled, students can reserve an available appointment. Or the instructor can reserve an appointment on behalf of the student.

of the appointment then reserve the appointment.
*If the student does not appear in the student list, have the student click on the Appointment Booking or StudentConnect button to force their name to the list. Once this is done, you will see the student's name in your list.

Students will only see that a slot is booked, they cannot see who booked the slot, or access the session.
