Zoom is a cloud-based web-conferencing tool that allows you to host and record online meetings. Carleton University has an enterprise license with Zoom accounts available for teaching and learning purposes.  Zoom can be used to host synchronous class sessions, office hours, group work sessions, webinars, departmental meetings and to create screen recordings.

Zoom Licenses

All instructors, staff, and students at Carleton have access to a Zoom license through their MyCarleton 1 credentials. You can access a Zoom license either by adding Zoom into a Brightspace course or by a logging directly into the Zoom website using your MC1 credentials/SSO login.

For instructors and teaching assistants, the email address associated with your licensed Zoom account should match that associated with your Brightspace account (either: firstnamelastname@cunet.carleton.ca or firstnamelastname@cmail.carleton.ca). For members of staff, the email address associated with your licensed Zoom account should be your firstnamelastname@cunet.carleton.ca address.

To check which email is associated with your Zoom account, visit the Carleton Email Confirmation Webpage and enter your MyCarleton One (MC1) account information (your MC1 credentials are the login and password you use to access the Carleton network, Brightspace, and other Carleton web applications.)

More information about the Zoom website and app are listed below:

If you have any questions or need support with your Zoom account, please submit a ticket to the TLS Support Portal.
