How do I join a Zoom meeting or Virtual Classroom?

Zoom and Virtual Classrooms are the two integrated tools that allow you to have an online video conference in Brightspace. Typically your instructor will use one or the other, but not both.

If your instructor is using Zoom or Virtual Classroom in your Brightspace course, there are a few different places it could be available. Be sure to ask your instructor for specific instructions on where to access the meeting if you need help.
