Zoom in Canvas and Blackboard

Note: The Zoom integration in Canvas and Blackboard works the same regardless of whether it is being used through Ann Arbor Canvas, Dearborn Canvas, Flint Blackboard, etc. The only differences are how to add Zoom to your course, and how to view the student view of the integration.
