Using Zoom

Save your Zoom cloud recordings!

You received a recent message stating Zoom recordings made prior to August 15th would be deleted per the State Chancellor’s Office.

We have now received an update that this message was intended for other Zoom users across the state, and does NOT apply to Foothill-De Anza as we moved to a subaccount in August 2020. Your Zoom recordings will NOT be deleted on March 8.

Spring Cleaning

Since we are limited in the amount of storage we have available to store recordings we strongly encourage you to do some "Spring cleaning" in the coming months and delete any archived recordings that you will not be using.

Access Your Zoom Account

As you may know, Zoom accounts are provided by a statewide grant from the California Community College Chancellor’s Office. Currently, a centralized office, ConferZoom, is the administrator for all Zoom accounts in the CCC system.

On August 21st, ConferZoom transfered administration of our district accounts to FHDA.

Logging into Zoom

When you log in to your Zoom account through the web, you'll log in at https://fhda-edu.zoom.us/.

You may still log in through conferzoom.org or zoom.us, it will simply redirect you to the FHDA subaccount.

Your current log in and password will work seamlessly with the new subaccount, and all your meetings will automatically transfer to our new subaccount.

If you are linking to Zoom recordings you will need to update the links. For help visit Online Learning office hours to connect with one of us.

Using Zoom from within Canvas

The new app “Foothill Zoom” replaced the ConferZoom app within Canvas.

Foothill Zoom works seamlessly with your FHDA Zoom account. When you schedule a meeting in Canvas through the Foothill Zoom app, the meeting will automatically be added to your FHDA Zoom account—in fact, the app is connected to this account! In addition, the new Foothill Zoom app will add the meeting to your Canvas Calendar.

  2. Select Recordings from the left-hand side of the screen. You may have the option of viewing Cloud and Local Recordings. Make sure to select Cloud Recordings. If that option is not shown it means that you automatically record to the cloud.
