Course Overview
This resource hub is a repository of materials, references and tools for independent exploration and learning.  This site offers a flexible and unstructured learning experience, allowing you to navigate the content at your own pace and explore diverse topics without the constraints of prerequisites or a prescribed sequence. This format encourages self-directed learning, enabling you to delve into the material based on your needs.

This site will provide you with a basic understanding to use  Zoom, inside your Canvas course, to facilitate live, interactive sessions with your students. Using our Canvas-Zoom integration will make it easier for you to schedule and host sessions, and post session recordings. Our Canvas-Zoom integration will make it easier for students to join your  sessions and view session recordings. And they don't have to download and install any software, or set up a Zoom account.  Everything happens right inside Canvas.
