Zoom is LIVE at Miami!

The Zoom implementation team has been hard at work preparing a new enterprise version of the popular video conferencing tool for all current Miami faculty, staff, and students, and is happy to report: Zoom is now live, and includes integration with Canvas and Google calendaring!

Current Zoom users

Because Miami has established a “federated” version of Zoom, if you have a registered account with Zoom (either paid or free) using a Miami email address ( your transition is currently being managed with Zoom. We are working with Zoom to rectify this challenge and expect the transition to be done by the end of this week. When you log in to Zoom after this transition, your account will be migrated, along with all of your recordings and recurring meetings!

In the meantime, you will continue to have access to your personal Zoom account, and we will notify you when access to Miami’s new account is available.

Google and Canvas integration

Zoom has been integrated with Google calendaring to allow adding a Zoom session to any calendar entry by using the “Add video conferencing” drop-down, similar to what is currently available for Webex and Google Meet.

An integration has also been created for Zoom to work seamlessly within Canvas, much like the current Webex integration.

Be on the lookout for additional information and possible feature updates as we move into the fall.

Support is available through IT Help, including a full array of Knowledge Base articles at Knowledge Base articles will continue to be added over the next several weeks, so check back often for additional information. Zoom itself also has wonderful support materials, including:
