  • D2L Zoom LTI
  • Zoom Client (App)
  • Zoom for Health

Access Zoom via D2L

Accessing Zoom via D2L will allow you to create Zoom meetings that are strictly related to your D2L course and available only to those enrolled in your classlist. The meetings are created within the D2L course but will also be accessible from your UArizona Zoom web portal. 

Step 1

Make sure you first have a university Zoom account established. Follow the steps in the Access UArizona Zoom Web Portal section above to establish your university Zoom account. 

Step 2

In a web browser, navigate to UArizona D2L (opens in new tab).

Select the UA NetID Login button.

Step 7

If it is the first time you have accessed a D2L course after establishing your university Zoom account it will ask if you would like for the Zoom Calendar app to operate using your account. 

Select the Accept button.


This message only appears once when you first access Zoom through a D2L course. If you happen to select the Cancel button on this message, it will mean that your Zoom meetings that you schedule within your course will not get auto-populated to the course calendar. The course calendar is where the majority of students will find and access your course meeting links. This choice cannot be undone so be sure you select the Accept button.
