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 a meeting link to Moodle course page

  • Seek further assistance

Review scenarios to use an external link (URL resource)

  2. Host records a Zoom meeting in the cloud but only wants the recording to be available to specific student(s). For example: a student has an excused absence for missing class but needs access to the video.
