Zoom Meeting

Zoom meetings can be integrated and used in two different ways: Zoom meeting activity and Zoom Meeting LTI (External tool). The Zoom Meeting activity is the simpler one compared to Zoom Meeting LTI. The Zoom LTI on the other hand gives more options to the user such as accessing pre-recorded meetings and creating personal meetings. Both options are explained below.

It may also be helpful to let your students know that you will be tracking their attention to increase engagement.

Adding Zoom Meeting LTI to your course

Once your administrator integrated the Zoom to your site as an external tool, you can start using it in your course.

Only one Zoom LTI activity per course is needed to access your meetings.

  1. Click the Turn editing on button in the upper right-hand corner of your site page.
  2. Click on the Add an activity or resource button where you want your Zoom LTI activity to be placed.
  3. Select Zoom LTI from the Add an activity or resource pop-up window and click Add.

4. On the next window, name your Zoom LTI activity and give a description if you like. Notice that you are not yet creating a session at this step, only embedding your zoom account into your course. So a name like "My Zoom Meetings" or "Algebra 1 Zoom Meetings" would make more sense.

Since the LTI is pre-configured for your site, you do not need to change other settings on this screen.

5. Once you click on save and display, the Zoom menus will be displayed as embedded into your course. From this point on, you can schedule a new meeting, access previous meetings, cloud recordings, or your personal meeting room without leaving the Radix LMS site.

6. you do not need to create another Zoom LTI activity to schedule more meetings, Just click on the Zoom LTI activity link located in your course to access the embedded zoom menus.
