Canvas Conferences

The Canvas Conference tool is an online webinar style tool.  Although this tool can be used for live, face-to-face interactions, Yale's primary video conferencing tools like Zoom and Microsoft Teams are more actively used by faculty, staff, and students.  

Why Use Canvas Conferences?

If you are seeking an alternative to Zoom or Microsoft Teams, you may consider using Canvas Conferences. Conferences should be limited to 100 users or fewer. Conference recordings will only be stored for 14 days. Conferences can be used similarly to Zoom or MS Teams for the following:

  • Hosting office hours
  • Conducting class via web conference
  • Collaborating with peers virtually
