How To Set Up and Use Zoom Pro External Tool

Adding the Zoom Pro External Tool to your course

In the desired week or section of your course, click on Add an activity or resource. Select Zoom Pro from the list of activities.

Set a name for the activity, then scroll down to “save and display” (do not use “show more” and enter/change any settings at this point) .

Hint: Name it something generic (example: Zoom meetings)

This module will hold all of your meetings, not just one (i.e. Face-2-Face Conferencing, Virtual Office Hours, etc.)


How to set up, edit, and start meetings in Zoom

To set up a meeting you will click the blue bottom on the top right that says Schedule a New Meeting.

To start the meeting, you can click the start button on the Upcoming Meetings page or click on the meeting itself and click Start this Meeting at the bottom of the page. An Invite Attendees link is also provided in case you need to invite or email potential attendees. 

Start this meeting button at the bottom of the saved zoom meeting.
