Before using Zoom for the first time, users will need to authenticate an account using a DePaul email address.
The preferred method to access Zoom is through D2L integration. This allows for access to Zoom from a D2L course under the
Edit Course tab. If choosing to integrate Zoom into D2L, a DePaul email address will need to be used as the preferred email address, so there are additional steps required to verify the preferred email address in Campus Connect:
Note: Please be aware that it can take 12-24 hours for the change to synchronization with D2L.
The Zoom desktop client can be downloaded via
depaul.zoom.us. In order to link the desktop client to a DePaul account, users must sign in via SSO.
Keep the Zoom desktop client updated to ensure that the latest version is being used.
