Zoom meetings can be created through D2L integration or through depaul.zoom.us. While both methods have ways to link to meetings in a class, D2L integration automatically puts Zoom meetings in the course Calendar and allows Zoom to be added as an External Learning Tool to Content (see
Adding a Zoom Link for more information).
To create a Zoom meeting inside D2L, verify that a DePaul email address is being used as the preferred email in D2L. See
Setting up Zoom for more information.

Note: The option to "Enable additional data center regions for this meeting" is not available.
Note: Videos stored in the Zoom Cloud are only available for 120 days.
