Zoom for Students

LACCD uses the Zoom video conferencing system to support online classes. Your professor may also use the system for other purposes, such as hosting a guest speaker or holding online office hours.

How to Access a Zoom Meeting or Class Session

If you’re taking a class, the Zoom meetings for that class can be found under the “Zoom” menu item in Canvas. If you need help with Canvas, please see this page.

Getting to Zoom for the First Time

When you click on a Zoom link, Zoom will ask you if you would like to download the Zoom application or to use your web browser. You may wish to click “download and Run Zoom” to download the application. Here’s some information about this process.Here is a short video on how to join a Zoom meeting:

How to share your screen

In your classes, your professor may ask you to share work you are doing on your computer screen. To do so, you will use the “Share screen” function in Zoom.

  • To do so, simply put your cursor at the bottom of the screen and click Share Screen.
  • Zoom will open up a pop-up window where you can select what you wish to share. Click on Desktop and click on “Share screen” button on the lower right.
  • To stop sharing your screen after you finish your presentation click on “Stop Share” button on top of your computer screen.
