Zoom in D2L

Zoom is now integrated within D2L Brightspace.  Instructors can conduct Zoom meetings within a D2L course and students enrolled in the course have access to attend the meetings. The integration allows instructors to schedule Zoom meetings, view upcoming and past Zoom meetings, and start/join Zoom meetings from a D2L course. Zoom meetings created within the course will be added to the course calendar in D2L and meeting recordings can be viewed and shared within the course.  

To use Zoom within a course in D2L Brightspace, the instructor must first add Zoom to the course.


There are two methods for adding Zoom to a course in D2L.  Zoom can be added to the Course Navigation Bar or it can be added within a Content Module.  You only need to add Zoom to the course one time.

How to Add Zoom to the Course Navigation Bar in D2L:  

The Course Navigation Bar can be easily changed from the "Course Default" Navbar to a navigation bar that includes Zoom.

To change the "Course Default" navbar to the "Course Default Navbar with Zoom":

  1. Select “Edit Course” in the Navigation Bar of your course in D2L.  (You may have to select the "More" link in the top navigation to see "Edit Course.")

  2. Select “Navigation & Themes” listed under Site Setup.

How to Add Zoom to a Content Module in D2L:  

Zoom can be added to a Content Module in a course.  (It only needs to be added to one content module.)

To add Zoom to a content module in a course:

  1. Log into your course in D2L and select “Content.” 

  2. Select a current module or create a new module. (We recommend adding Zoom to a separate content module.)

  3. In the module, select “Add Existing Activities” > “External Learning Tools”
