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 depaul.zoom.us, however, Zoom can also be integrated into D2L. This is an optional feature that 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.
