URL Resource: Zoom Meeting Link [Faculty]

For scenarios when the Zoom Activity provides unnecessary features, hosts can choose instead to simply link a single meeting to their Moodle ISU course.

This Guide Will Help You to:
  • Review scenarios to use an external link

  • Schedule a Meeting on Zoom.us

  • Add meeting link to Moodle course page

  • Seek further assistance

Review scenarios to use an external link
Use an external link to:
  1. Use a recurring meeting in more than one course. For example: creating a zoom meeting for office hours and pasting the same link into more than one course.

  2. Cloud record zoom meeting but the host doesn't want all students to have access to every recording. The host only wants to make a recording available to single student(s) for a specific purpose like excused absences.
