Creating Zoom Accounts for LACCD Faculty
and Connecting them to Canvas


Which type of user are you?

Please follow the directions created for the type of user you are.  At the very end will be additional troubleshooting directions you can follow.  TechConnect is the newly branded name for ConferZoom.

New Faculty Zoom User

Please follow these steps in order whether you just created an LACCD.zoom.us account during the past week or you are creating it today for the first time.

  1. Close all open web browser windows on your computer before you begin.  You don’t want conflicting login issues that prevent you from being successful. 
  2. Open Chrome and log into the PeopleSoft portal at https://mycollege.laccd.edu.
  3. Go to Canvas.
  4. Check your Account -> Settings and notice what email addresses you have.

5.If you have two, and one is your username@laccd.edu and the second is username@college.edu that is good.  Both need to be in black print.  If one is in blue, click on it and re-send the confirmation link.  Go to your email and confirm it.  Make the college email address as the preferred email by clicking on the star that appears when you run your mouse over the email id.

6.If you only have one email address, username@laccd.edu, you should add a second email address.  Preferably, add the college email, but if you don’t have it, add a personal email.  Be sure to confirm the newly added email address.  Then make the email address that is not username@laccd.edu the preferred email.

7.Please log out and log back in following Steps #1-3.  You can confirm the email settings if you wish following Step #4.

8. Open a new tab in Chrome or a new window in Chrome and go to https://laccd.zoom.us.

LACCD Zoom Login Page

9. Click on the blue Sign in button.  If you cannot reach this page using the laccd.zoom.us link, you need to clear your browser cache and start over at step #8.  If that fails, remove the Zoom client from your computer and restart.

10. Since you are already signed into the LACCD Portal, you may not need to sign in again.  If you are required to sign in, user your username@laccd.edu full email address and your Portal password.

11.Once you log in, you should be in your LACCD Zoom account.  Click on your Profile and be sure the email address is username@laccd.eduZoom profile showing Sign-In email and linked accounts SSO type.

12 .If you do not see your LACCD email, these directions are not for your type of account or your situation has conditions that warrant special attention.

14. Go down the course menu and find TechConnectSSO.  Click on it.

19. You will need to go into every course and change the course menu navigation features.  You need to hide the ConferZoom menu link and move the TechConnectSSO menu link higher in the menu so your students can find it easier.
