Bypassing Canvas Integration: Scheduling a Zoom Meeting from your Zoom Profile

If you have not already, we recommend that you configure your personal Zoom settings for the smoothest experience possible for you and your students.

  1. Log into your FSU Zoom account at with your FSU credentials.

    For easy access to your individual Zoom account, enable My FSU Zoom on your Canvas course's navigation menu. This will also give your students access to their individual Zoom accounts.

  2. At the top right of the page, select Schedule a meeting.
  3. Select the settings you would like for your Zoom meeting.
    1. Topic: enter in a name for your session.
    2. Scheduling options: Select the date, start time, duration of meeting, time zone, and whether or not this will be a recurring meeting.
    3. Audio and Video options: Select whether or not you would like to use a webcam and whether to allow your students (participants) to share webcam video. For the audio options, we recommend selecting both so that if your students have any trouble with using their computer audio they can easily dial in to the meeting via a phone as well.
    4. Meeting options: Select the options that you wish to use.

      If you will not have any guest speakers (non-FSU speakers) in your meeting, check the box to require that only authenticated users may join your meeting. This prevents anyone without a Zoom account from accessing your meeting. If you have a student whose ADA accommodations include providing live captions, be sure to follow these directions from the Office of Accessibility Services.


      We strongly recommend that you check the Record the meeting automatically to the Zoom cloud check box. This means you will not have to remember to start the recording when you start your meeting - if this box is not checked and you do not manually record the meeting, then there will be no way to go back and retrieve a recording of your Zoom meeting. If you record your Zoom meeting to the cloud, then it will automatically be added to your Kaltura account and you will be able to download it and save it to your local computer if you wish.

    5. Optional: If you have any TAs who will be in the meeting, or you wish to add any other alternative hosts, type in their email addresses.

  4. Click the blue Save button at the bottom of the page.
  5. A meeting summary page will appear. On this page you can view the join URL or the meeting invitation. To share this meeting with your students, copy the join URL and paste it into a Canvas course announcement or Canvas calendar event so that your students will be able to join the meeting at its scheduled start time.
