Individuals with a student, instruction colleague or observer role in ELMS-Canvas do not need a University of Maryland (UMD) Zoom account to view scheduled meetings, participate in meetings or playback recordings in ELMS-Canvas. HOWEVER, those not logged into a UMD Zoom account will be placed in a waiting room until a host admits them. For more information, please see Zoom Waiting Room Requirement: Managing Meeting Access for UMD and External Collaborators. These roles do NOT have the ability to create or host meetings in ELMS-Canvas. This feature is not enabled. These individuals do not need to do anything with their email address in ELMS-Canvas.
If students want to create Zoom meetings, they can visit Zoom, login with their UMD credentials and an account will be created through Single-Sign On. See Authenticate your Zoom account for a Personal Room in the Student Guide for Using Zoom in an ELMS-Canvas Course.
