How can I create a Zoom link for students to join for class?

Step-by-step guide

Below are the written directions for adding Zoom to OnCourse. There is also a video tutorial walking users through creating a Zoom meeting and adding the invitation to a Page in OnCourse.

  1. Begin by launching a web browser and going to https://fredonia-edu.zoom.us/.
  2. Click on the blue Sign In Button. If you are logged into OnCourse, clicking Sign In will re-direct you to your Zoom Meetings page. If you are not logged into OnCourse, you’ll need to enter your Eservices credentials to get signed in.


  3. Click on Schedule a Meeting.



  4. Configure your meeting settings. Give your meeting a descriptive title. Choose the Date and Time that your meetings will begin. Choose Recurring Meeting with No Fixed Time.  This will allow you to create one Zoom link that can be used throughout the semester.


  5. Finish configuring your settings.  Leave the default settings enabled for Passcode, Waiting Room and Mute participants upon entry. Scroll down and click the blue Save button when you are done configuring your settings.


  6. You’ve now created your Zoom meeting. It’s now important that you copy the invitation and share it in the Page tool in OnCourse.  Click on the Copy Invitation button to get started. This copies the invitation to your computer’s clipboard.




  7. On the next screen click on the blue Copy Meeting Invitation button.

HINTS

  • Zoom meetings must be started from either the Fredonia Zoom Web Portal at https://fredonia-edu.zoom.us/ or the Zoom App. Both ways require the instructor to login using EServices credentials.  
  • If you need to assign an Alternative host, enter the person’s email address in the Alternative host field. Alternative hosts can start Zoom meetings. Click the blue Save button to save your changes.

  • If you want to pre-assign the breakout rooms, under Meeting Options check the box for Breakout Room pre-assign. You can create them manually or import a CSV file.
