Zoom Updates

Updating Your Zoom Client

Make sure that your version of Zoom is the most up-to-date, especially if you are not seeing features you should, or if Zoom is not performing the way it should. Zoom on Chromebooks will update automatically, but remind students to power off their Chromebooks at the end of the day, not just close the lid, or updates will not take place. There is a tutorial here for updating Zoom on a laptop or desktop computer.

Canvas Support - Phone, Chat, Video

The Help button at the lower left of your Canvas screen connects you directly to Canvas support:
