TechConnect Zoom is an application that is available in Canvas to Districts that are managing employee Zoom accounts. The TechConnect Zoom tool offers more scheduling options, faster recording downloads, and applied Zoom updates. The new tool appears in your Canvas navigation and is a direct connect to your Zoom account. The interface looks just like Zoom because it is Zoom!
Click on the TechConnect Zoom tool in the Canvas navigation (your college many have chosen a different name).
The menu tabs include:
- All My Zoom Meeting/Recordings or Course Meetings/Recordings
- Schedule a New Meeting
- Import a Meeting (icon is the 3 vertical dots)
- Upcoming Meetings
- Previous Meetings
- Cloud Recordings
When there is more than one instructor in the course, all meetings/recordings for all instructors can be viewed; or view only your meetings/recordings. Toggle between your meetings and other instructors from the link to the left of the Schedule a New Meeting.

Personal Meeting Room
This is an instant meeting when launched from the Personal Meeting Room page. Please note that you can also Schedule a New Meeting using the Personal Meeting ID. The ID is a static number used for every meeting when Personal Meeting ID is selected. It is a 24/7/365 room; anyone with the ID could join at anytime, possible interrupting a session in progress. We recommend using a password if you prefer to use your Personal Meeting ID. Attendance reports will be provided as long as there is more than one person in the meeting.
Recordings process after the Host ends the meeting. When processing is complete, the recording will appear on this page. You will be notified if you have no recordings. If you have recordings, they will be listed by date.
