Adding a Zoom Link to D2L

After creating a Zoom meeting, a link to access that meeting can be added to any rich text area in D2L. The most common areas to add a link are in News announcements, the Activity Feed, or the Content Area.

Zoom meetings created through D2L integration will populate in the Course Calendar, but they should still be added to one of the areas here to ensure student accessibility.
