Using Zoom with D2L

You can add a virtual meeting to your course using the Zoom integration in D2L. You can do this through the Collaboration drop-down menu. Or you can simply add a link to your Zoom Personal Meeting Room in any content module.

NOTE: Before you attempt to set up Zoom in your course, make sure you log into LSC Zoom first to ensure your Zoom profile is set up properly, using your LSC Employee Email Address. You can sign-in by clicking [Sign-in] using the same credentials you use to log into myLoneStar.

Please DO NOT use your personal Zoom credentials (Non-LSC) here.
