Enabling Zoom within a Canvas Course

Updated on

Zoom is hidden by default within Canvas courses. This article describes how to add the Zoom tool to your navigation menu.

Users affiliated with Yale School of Medicine or Yale School of Nursing should still add the "Zoom" tool in the navigation menu.

  1. In your Canvas course, click "Settings" in the navigation menu.
  2. Click the "Navigation" tab across the top.


  1. Drag the "Zoom" tool from the lower list to the upper, enabled list of course items.
  2. Click "Save" when done. The Zoom tool will now be in your course navigation menu.
