Note:  When you create a Zoom meeting through a Canvas course, ALL students will get a notification and be able to participate in the meetings. If you need to set up an individual meeting with one student or only certain students in the course, set up the meeting through instead and share the meeting info with the student(s) through email or a calendar invite.
